6275.40 | Assignment/Grades

A regular classroom teacher assigns work and usually assigns grades for work completed by a student in a homebound status, including tests taken. In unusual longer-term arrangements, the teacher may designate the homebound teacher as the person to make the assignment of tasks and to award grades for work completed and tests taken. A temporary teacher/tutor who coordinates schoolwork with a student's regular classroom teacher is not expected to be a specialist in all academic disciplines. The homebound teacher is intended to be a temporary link between the student and the regular classroom teacher. Secondary school students choosing not to attend school prior to completion of courses and credits are encouraged to arrange for correspondence courses for the number of credits allowed. (2-27-01)
