The Calgary Board of Education is desirous of promoting the development of good study habits. It believes that home study can contribute to this objective as well as to the reinforcement of learning. Two kinds of study are recognized, the completion of written or "hand-in" assignments, and the informal study of material related to the subjects under study in school. While the Board is anxious to promote the supportive role of the home in the child's education, it is anxious at the same time not to interfere with the child's pursuit of other wholesome non-school interests of educational, cultural, or recreational value (AR 3066 - Homework).
In junior high school, pupils are expected to study from one-half to one hour per school night.
Missed work for all absences, including major field trips, is the student’s responsibility. You may see your classmates and/or your teachers when you return to school for work that was missed. Teachers are available for extra help on an appointment basis. Students are encouraged to use the D2L site to check for missed assignments.
