Homework

 Homework will not be posted on the class website. It is the duty of each student to write his/her homework in his/her agenda daily. It is also your child's responsibility to turn in his/her homework at the appropriate time everyday. There will be no homework assigned on Fridays. 

 

Hillsborough County Schools Homework Guidelines:

 

A student has the right to:

~ meaningful and relevant homework activity that reinforces school learning;

~ homework that matches their individual abilities and interests to ensure the facilitation of independent, successful completion;

~ homework that includes varied activities which reinforce the basic skills or extend and enrich concepts learned;

~ homework that does not introduce new concepts;

~ assignments that are made according to individual student needs and abilities;

~ regular feedback to include parents regarding assignments. Parents should be notified when a student routinely does not complete homework.
