Homework is to be completed during the designated 45 minute time period in the daily schedule. Forcey 360 is not a tutoring service, nor is Forcey 360 a solely academic program. Students are expected to be able to complete their homework themselves. Staff will help students when asked, however they are not going to give the students the answers. Students with homework packets will not be forced to go ahead in the packet nor will they be required by Forcey 360 to complete anything other than what is written on the current date in the packet. Students with planners are expected to complete the assigned homework for the current date.
During homework time, students will complete their homework silently and independently. This means that students are not allowed to talk to one another during homework time. If a student has forgotten their homework in their classroom, Forcey 360 cannot send the student up to retrieve their homework. If a student did not write down their homework, the student may not ask a fellow student during homework time about it. They may ask a staff member about their homework, and if the staff member sees fit, they may mediate talking between two fellow students in order to get the information necessary. If there is a group project, it must be completed outside of school and on the parents own time. A parent may work with a teacher to set up a time with a fellow student, but this participation may not happen while a student is at homework time with Forcey 360.
Staff will not force a student to complete homework that is not assigned by the teacher. If a student has completed their homework for the day, and a staff member has checked it, the student will be given the choice of reading a book (either one they brought themselves or a book provided by the program) or writing their bible verse.
If a parent does not want their child to do their homework at Forcey 360, please notify the Director so that the appropriate staff can be made aware. Exceptions to the way homework is done will be considered by the Director, who retains the right to decline the exception on a case by case basis. If you are interested in having your child tutored, please contact your child’s teacher or the school office, as Forcey 360 does not offer tutoring nor do we have staff available to tutor.
