Families whose children are in CBE TLC Alternative Programs of Choice have made the decision to support a program where a successful student demonstrates self-management and organizational skills and a commitment to daily homework. The following guidelines below by division are taken from CBE’s Administrative Regulation 3066 - Homework.
Division II (Grades 5 & 6)
Formal assignments may be given at the discretion of the teacher, particularly for pupils who need special attention or help, but in general, assignments should be of the reading or study type. Parents should be made aware of the teacher's general requirements with respect to home study, and the CBE homework expectations, but no school requirement should exceed 20 minutes in length in total.
Division III (Grades 7-9)
Students are expected to study from one-half to one hour per school night in total.
Students are expected to submit assignments on time. If an assignment cannot be completed due to a reasonable situation, parents should contact the teacher to discuss arrangements. If at all possible, this should be done prior to the due date.
Parents are able to access D2L or Google Classroom through their child’s username and password. This is where information regarding deadlines for major assignments and tests can be found. Many teachers also use this tool to post assignments and rubrics. D2L should be checked on a regular basis as a way to stay informed about what is happening in classes.
