Myth: "Homework doesn't count anymore."
Reality: Homework is essential. If homework is given as practice, it will be scored, but not graded. If homework is an extended paper, project, or assignment given after instruction, practice, and feedback has occurred, it may be considered a factor in the achievement grade. Students will receive feedback on all assignments- including homework- to help them improve, and feedback and scores will be available in the BCPS One Gradebook. Timely homework completion is part of the report card grade for work completion, which is one of four grades for skills and conduct.
