Homework Grading: Assignments are graded on a daily basis. When homework is returned, incorrect answers may be corrected and returned the next school day. Each corrected answer will be given half credit and the homework grade for the day will be increased.

Late work: Daily homework assignments are a critical part of the instructional strategy. These daily assignments must be completed on time so that the student may participate effectively in the learning process. Late assignments will receive reduced credit at the discretion of the teacher.

Absences: Because homework is assigned on a daily basis, several absences in a row result in a lot of missed information and assignments.

Absences due to illness:  If a student has many absences due to illness, the student should try to learn the missed lesson and complete missed assignments. If the student needs assistance, the teacher will schedule time to go over the material for the student.

Absences due to family vacation: If a student has absences due to family vacation the student should try to learn the missed lessons and complete missed assignments. If the students need assistance, the teacher will schedule time to go over the material for the student,  but it is the students responsibility to make sure assignments are turned in to the teacher and that any missed tests or quizzes are made up within a reasonable amount of time.
