Homework Philosophy

Homework has a specific purpose at East. Teachers assign homework as a practice of material and skills needed to succeed in the subject and improve test scores. Students are expected to complete their homework and turn it in on time.
Students should:
• Record all assignments in their handbook or agenda
• Check website for upcoming assignments and due dates
• Make sure they understand the assignments
• Turn in assignments when due
Parents should:
• Ask to see the assignments recorded in this assignment calendar
• Assist students in developing good study habits by providing necessary materials and a specific time and place for study that is free of distractions
• Contact the teachers or counselors when concerns arise
• Track student progress through the school district web based information system – Infinite Campus
Students wishing to make up assignments and re-take exams need to make arrangements with the teacher to schedule a time convenient for both student and teacher.
