Hi, Karen! Those are two great questions that I get asked about quite often. At the beginning of the year the students and parents both have to sign my homework contract which states that stipulation. As of yet, I have not had anyone refuse to sign this. Most of my students come to me with a history rooted in homework issues (failure to turn in assignments) and an inability to catch up with back work so they are eager to have this opportunity for their child to stay current with their assignments. Thankfully, my district provides a late bus for students that stay after school for guided study. Do you struggle with this issue within your classroom?
