Late Work Policies
The focus is for every student to be successful in his/her learning and have grades/percentages that reflect his/her understanding. Therefore, every attempt will be made on the behalf of the Paterson Arts and Science Charter School staff to have each student submit his/her work. Below, please see the late work policy.
Kindergarten to First Grade:
Teachers will be in correspondence with parents. Homework may be assigned daily or sometimes weekly. Teachers will be in collaboration with parents regarding late homework/projects and assignments. Multiple missed assignments may affect the level of achievement per marking period.
