    Homework assignments will be used as a means to reinforce, enhance, and/or build upon academic skills that have been taught/ introduced in the classroom. Homework may take on a variety of forms/strategies to reinforce the needed content and study skills. The assignments may be short-term or long-term in length. Not included as homework assignments are term papers, research papers, laboratory reports, portfolios and long-term projects. It is a student’s responsibility to complete homework assignments. It is the teacher’s responsibility to clearly articulate the purpose of homework to students and parents, as well as the weighting system, in writing. It is the parents’ responsibility to support the student in completing assignments and in seeking clarification when necessary. The lack of completion of homework cannot be the sole basis for student failure.
