Homework Policy

 

Regularly assigned homework will be graded throughout the week and appear as an average on MSP every two weeks. All assignments need to be completed to a satisfactory degree. Per the Family Handbook, homework will be given a reduction of 10 points each day that it is late. Homework more than 3 days late will receive a grade of 0. Failure to complete assigned work by the date that it is due, including long-term projects and having tests/quizzes signed, will result in the following infraction procedure:
