  • Homework 
    Students should have approximately fifty minutes of homework per night. This may vary per day as unfinished classroom may be assigned in addition to the regularly assigned homework. I provide daily homework based on the units of study. More than one subject will come home each night. Your child will have homework everyday Monday through Thursday and it is due the following morning. Students are required to read a minimum of 30 minutes per night or a total of 150 minutes per week. I include reading with homework. Weekends are not included in this total. I typically don't assign homework on the weekends unless extra times is required on a book report/special project. I believe that time should be family time.
      1. Homework is provided daily Monday-Thursday night.
    • Thirty minutes of reading daily or 150/week is minimum.
    • No homework is given over the weekends or holidays. 
    Grades
     
    It is the responsibility of each student to work towards improvement of his or her grade. Students will receive letter grades in the
    subject area this year. Here is the scoring reference:
     
     A    100-90       B    89-80        C    79-70        D    69-60       F    59-below
     
     
    If your student has not met a score of 70% or better on a graded assignment, it should be redone. I give students several chances on most assignments to reach a score of 70% with your help at home. If a student scores a 70% on an assessment test, and would like to raise their overall grade they may redo the assignment once. The highest score a student may receive on any redone assignment is a 90%.
     
     
     
    Assignments earning grades of less than 70% should be redone. Second Chance Opportunities Sheets are available. Grades are earned based on student performance.
     
     
    Report Cards-Family Access
     
     
    Secondary school report cards are available at the end of each grading period and students are assessed in accordance with Oak Harbor Public Schools board policy. Parents can keep tabs on their children's progress and their problems by checking online in Family Access, a secure system that also allows you to check attendance and more. Account information is provided to each family by the school office at the start of the school year. Talk to your school office about Family Access or learn more here. | Family Access Log-In
     
    • Conferences are twice per year.
    • Report cards are accessed through Family Access.
    • Grades are based on assignments and tests given in class and grades earned by the student.
