Homework will be assigned on a daily basis to reinforce material covered in class. 

Your child will receive a homework grade based on homework completed during a one-month period. The student’s grade begins with an “4” and for each missing homework, one grade is subtracted from that “4”. Homework is checked and corrected every day. A homework detention is given when 3 homework's are missing in any subject in the same marking period by any teacher

Summative and Formative Assessments:

Formative assessments will be given during a unit of study to see where each student is as we progress through a unit.  Summative assessments will be given at the conclusion of a unit.  Students will be given a continual review of the unit will always be given well in advance of an assessment and the students will always be well prepared. Ongoing review of concepts is a must, and not the night before.


Trimesters are given once per trimester and are a cumulative assessment of that trimester’s work. A very comprehensive review is always given.

Regents Exam: ALL students in this class will be administered the NYS Regents Algebra I Examination in June 2019 -  Holy Trinity Diocesan High School
