**** The reading of material, the practice of skills and the reinforcement of content is critical to a student’s academic development.  Work completed at home is an extension of the learning that occurs in the classroom. These assignments are the student’s responsibility and will be evaluated through performance-based assessments. Students and parents can monitor academic progress via the Genesis Parent Portal at their convenience.
