Q. My child says he/she never has homework and that it was done in class. Is this true?
A. It depends. Sometimes, if classwork is not finished in class, it becomes homework. But other classes do assign homework on a regular basis. Usually, the student's grades indicate whether or not he/she really has homework, but just isn't telling you. For example, if a student is receiving grades of D's and F's, chances are very good that he/she has been assigned homework, but is just not doing it.
How can you find out for sure? You have a couple of options. You can contact the teachers either by email or leave a telephone message requesting this information. Or, you can have your child pick up a daily contract in the counseling office. The student then takes this contact around to all of the teachers and the teachers indicate on the form whether or not the student has homework and whether or not it has been turned in. Daily contracts and weekly progress reports can also be downloaded at the links below.
You can also conduct "agenda checks". All students were given an agenda at the beginning of the school year. Students are to write down homework assignments, test dates, etc., in their agenda on a daily basis. Ask your child to show you his/her agenda. If the agenda is blank, contact the teachers or have your child pick up a contract as mentioned above.
