Homework Guidelines

Homework and assignments extend and reinforce what has been learned in class and develop a sense of self-discipline, personal responsibility, and independent thinking. Completing homework and assignments in a timely fashion allows students to:

  • Demonstrate their knowledge and skill in a particular area; and
  • Receive valuable teacher feedback, which may later assist in improving the overall mark or level of the student.

Each student is expected to spend some time doing schoolwork at home to satisfy the learning skills requirements outlined in report cards.

Late or Missing Assignments

The timely submission of assignments is a work habit. Work habits form part of the evaluation criteria for students' report cards. Teachers use a variety of strategies to ensure that work is submitted on time. If work is late, a teacher may require a student to complete the task in the reflection room, and will notify parents to discuss next steps.

Teachers refer any issues with non-compliance, regarding the submission of work, to the principal.
