  • There should be no test or quiz schedule for the first class meeting after Thanksgiving, winter, and spring break
  • Teachers should communicate the approximate length of time it should take to complete assignments.
  • Administration will work with teachers in a timely manner to address concerns regarding homework.
  • Working with their counselors, students will select course that are meaningful and manageable.
  • Students and parents will use Advocacy Guidelines for TJHSST students to address academic and homework concerns.
