The quality completion of daily homework is absolutely essential to academic success in middle school, high school and college.
Homework is any daily assignment given to students to prepare them for the next class. Students who come to class not having done their homework come to class unable to benefit fully from the class experience-and unable to contribute fully to that experience. Homework is also any long-term assignment--i.e. a research paper, a project--for which students have to budget their time and effort.
Assignments can require reading, writing, studying, even just plain thinking.
All homework is to be completed on time unless excused for a valid reason, such as illness.
Excused assignments are to be made up promptly.
All students have been issued a homework assignment book and are expected to utilize it on a daily basis. Parents are encouraged to check the book nightly.
Finally, all homework is expected to be done by the students themselves (including typing/keyboarding), with only guidance from parents and siblings.
