OK, I am SO DONE with late and missing work. Our 50% off one day late policy and missing their one recess per day did not affect our students' turn in rate. So I'm thinking about giving 3 late homework passes per quarter. They can turn in an assignment 24 hrs after the due date without penalty. I want to say that I will not accept anything else unless there is a parent note, and no more than two days after the original due date. Keep in mind most of their "homework" is unfinished classwork. Does that sound reasonable? I also wondered if they should "earn" the third one with personal behavior. I teach 4th by the way.
