Homework, Report Card & Grading Policies

HOMEWORK

    The New Hanover County Board of Education believes that homework is an integral part of the school program. Homework is appropriate to reinforce classroom learning; practice previously learned skills; finish class work; preview instructional materials; and complete special research/writing projects, activities, or papers. Homework shall follow recommended time guidelines, and provide for differentiation of assignments based on student need.

Homework shall be sufficiently explained to students so that they clearly understand the expectations of the assignment.

Homework shall be carefully planned and evaluated for its purpose, appropriateness, value, and timeliness. Homework shall be monitored by the principal or designee.

REPORT CARDS
      There are four (4) grading periods during the school year. A progress report/report card will be sent to the parents of each student at the end of each grading period.
      In addition, an interim progress report will be sent to the parents of each student at the midpoint of each grading period.

View school year calendar for dates of report cards and interim reports.
