Students should be using their planners to help them know what work they are finished and have turned in versus incomplete and not turned in. I have notice several highlighting signifying that they are finished, but they aren’t turning in the work. Also, I only accept late work for partial credit if a student attends Friday school. It is their responsibility to get their work turned in. They are given adequate notice of due dates through the planner and often written on their papers. Students need to complete the assigned classwork and study in order to get the most out of their learning.
Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.
