Class Assignments and Homework Philosophy
In-class and homework assignments are an important part of life at Lincoln High School. Assignments are designed to utilize, reinforce or expand upon the information in class lessons. Students are expected to complete and turn in all required assignments on time. This is critical to student success. Teachers are expected to do everything possible to help students complete assignments and are available before and after school to provide extra help. Students may be asked to come in before school or stay after school to receive extra help when necessary. Homework and outside assignments may be assigned at the discretion of the student’s teachers. Students not completing class work during class time are still responsible to complete it and turn it in
Requests for make-up assignments by parents may be made on the second day of the student’s absence and will be available for pick up the next day at the end of the school day. These assignments must be completed and returned before a request for further assignments will be honored. When students are absent, they miss class presentations, discussions, demonstrations, and activities all designed to help students learn. Much of this information cannot be duplicated by reading a textbook. Active participation in the classroom is a key element in student achievement. Students and parents are encouraged to keep student absenteeism to an absolute minimum. When a student is absent, make-up work is the student's responsibility and must be completed within a reasonable length of time as set by the teacher(s).
Student led conferences are scheduled in the fall and spring. Homeroom teachers will contact families to schedule conferences. We will make every attempt to accommodate family work schedules.
Fall Conferences - Week of October 5 to 8
Spring Conferences - Week of February 22 to 25
