Frank Roberts Junior High

Assignment Policy

 

Students are expected to submit assignments to their teachers on the assigned due dates.  If a student fails to do so, teachers will immediately place a zero in Power School as a place holder until the later material is submitted in accordance with the District's new draft assessment policy. In addition teachers will use an escalating level of intervention to ensure the assignments are completed and submitted.  These include:

  • Speaking to the student individually to ascertain the reason the work was not submitted.
  • Making contact with the parent via email or phone to inform them that their child has failed to submit required work.  Encourage the parent to monitor the child’s progress via Power School and ensure the parent is aware that the work will be accepted upon completion.
  • If necessary notify the administration team regarding outstanding work.

Please note that all major assignments will be posted by the student’s teacher(s) on the homework site of the school’s webpage at least three (3) days  prior to its due date.
