 If Your Student Is Struggling

  • Log into PowerSchool and teacher websites daily
  • Have your child show you the completed work each day.  Students often think they have finished or forget that they have homework.
  • Try a Homework Folder.  Once you see that homework is completed, watch your student put it in this folder.  All homework goes into this folder this way your child only has to look one place for homework to be turned in.  You can check this folder daily to make sure your student is turning in their homework.
  • Provide a daily incentive for completing and turning in homework.  Small incentives such as daily computer or phone time work sot hat if you have to withold it, it is only for one day.  Then the incentive starts over for the next day.
  • Talk with your student's teachers.  You may contact them by phone or email
  • If you have tried all of these suggestions, please feel free to contact your studen't counselor.  We are happy to assist and/or schedule a Parent/Teacher conference or Student Study Team (SST) meeting.
