Not doing homework Homework / attendance Children need to do homework and practice in order to keep up. Must send in their recordings on due date. Children must attend each time. IF parent cannot commit time to this school, Parent should teach children at home when available to do so.
Not doing homework Children continually falling behind due to lack of parental involvement to help with homework, will be held back if possible (to a review level of last years work), or dismissed if space cannot achieve this. Classes will not be split into varying levels of Quran memorization. This robs children of needed time repeating with teacher. When the average people in class finish once sura, they will start the next one. There is a set curriculum per group for the year.
Not doing homework - consequences After two times not doing homework, child will get warning If happens again, then a communication from the teacher to parents to find out what is the cause. After third time with no homework, suspension from school for one week, time to be used to finish up all missed lessons. If after suspension, homework is still not done, the child will be dismissed in order to allow other children on the waiting list to attend school.
Absences Three unexcused absences will mean suspension from school in order to do homework and catch up. Absences will be kept track by teacher in teacher binder. Parent to communicate directly with teacher regarding not coming, not with administration. Parent to obtain make up work and missed lesson plans and homework, to be ready for the week after in order for child not to fall behind.
Safety ZERO, ZERO tolerance for hitting or physical fighting or physical play in school. Children get one warning then one parent/teacher conference then one “ I will keep my hands to myself” written 25 times then one week suspension. IF actions continue, dismissal.
