Parent Center Judson ISD provides parents with a means of staying up-to-date on their child’s progress, the JISD Parent Center. Parent Center is a secure website that gives parents the opportunity to check grades, view/download Progress Reports and Report Cards, monitor attendance, review discipline information, e-mail teachers, check meal balances and charges, and view library records. Since teachers are required to update student grades weekly, parents always have an updated picture of their child’s academic progress.
Absences Students must be in attendance for at least 90 percent of the days school is in session in order to receive credit for the school year. If students do not meet this requirement, only an official attendance committee can consider grade level advancement or credit reinstatement (EI Legal).
Homework expectations for grade 3 students are:
Homework should not exceed 45 minutes nightly, including reading and math facts. Students are expected to complete all homework assignments. Students in grades 3 are expected to read, or be read to, for at least 20 minutes each school night. Students should also practice math facts weekly. If a student has two or more teachers, the teachers are expected to coordinate homework to adhere to the maximum time frame.
Late Work: Late work is defined as any assignment that is not submitted on its due date, with the exception of make-up work for absences or approved school activities. Late assignments will be accepted 3 days from the assignment due date or at the end of the nine weeks, whichever is sooner. In case of extenuating circumstances, it is the parent/guardian and/or student’s responsibility to inform the teacher and/or appropriate administrator so that an exception to the rule may be considered. The teacher will have the final authority to grant any exceptions.
Make-Up Work for Absences Students: Students shall be expected to make up assignments and tests after absences. Students shall receive a zero for any assignment or test not made up within the allotted time. Students will be given one day to make up work for each day they are absent (excused or unexcused), with exceptions made due to severe or prolonged illness. Students will not receive a grade penalty for makeup work from an absence due to suspension. Students will not receive credit for makeup work when the absence is due to truancy, instead, students will receive a “missing” for the assignment (EIAB Local).
