Homework is usually assigned Mondays through Thursdays. There are some exceptions but I never give homework on Fridays. Students may make up missed homework as long as it is within the time limit. I must enter my grades on Progress Book, which is the grading software that the district uses. I am mandated to do this by the school district. Since I must log the grades online, students can only make up homework one month at a time. I input each month's homework at the end of each month. I will not allow homework from previous months to be made up. I will give a deadline before I enter the grades online.
For example: I will only allow students to hand in late homework for the month of September until the final week of September. Once we are in the month of October, I will post the homework average for September onto Progress Book and students can no longer make up September's homework because the grades are posted.
