Homework is due at the beginning of class on the day it is due.
It can be turned in the next day for half credit.
It is quite a challenge to keep up with all the missing work from absences. I would love to tutor each child individually, but it is impossible for me to keep track of each 90+ students' missing work. As stated in the handbook, it is the student's responsibility to see that missing work is completed.
My teaching style does not consist of worksheets. When a student misses class, it is difficult for me to know how to have the student make up the class work. I also spend the majority of teaching time in instruction, so when a child misses my class, he cannot make up tests in class the next day because he will miss new instruction.
To allow students to make up tests, I place the tests in study hall so that students have the opportunity to make up the tests they miss. It is the student's responsibility to ask for these tests, not the study hall
teacher's. I try to give at least a week for students to make up this work which is more time than allowed in the school policy.
Students who do not have a study hall may work at the homework table during lunch or stay after school any night except Friday, and I can allow them to make up the tests or quizzes with me. They need to check with me to make sure I will be staying, but this is not usually a problem.
I hope this clarifies how a student makes up work in my class.
