It is expected that each student will read at home each day for a minimum of 20 minutes for the purpose of continued practice of reading skills learned at school. Parents/students will report daily reading using the individual classroom tracking system.
Country View Elementary, in alignment with current research, will not generally assign homework, with the exception of the daily reading. Homework that may be assigned will be work that is aligned with essential learning targets, and is given with the intent of increasing student academic achievement.
Teachers will ensure that adequate time is provided at school for students who use their time and tools wisely to complete assignments/work. If situations occur where a student is not completing assignments/work in class, the teacher will attempt to accommodate or differentiate to meet the needs of the student. If, after accommodation and differentiation, the student is still not completing assignments/work, the teacher will work with parents to devise a plan to assist the student to complete assignments/work at home.
Additional activities and resources may be shared with parents, students, and their families for extra practice of knowledge and skills taught at school. Students who are absent will work at home to complete assignments/work missed while absent. Students will have two days for every one day absent to complete the assignments/work resulting from their absence.
