Responsibilities of Parties
Teachers are required to:
• Ensure that each student is issued with a subject Assessment Plan by Week 4 of each course outlining formative and summative assessments appropriate to the subject and year level
• Ensure that all summative assessments are provided in writing to students with due date, task requirements, word length, weighting and assessment criteria clearly indicated
• Negotiate with students if homework cannot be completed by the due date (due to ill health, family/personal problems, other extraordinary commitments and/or extenuating circumstances)
• Explain to students the consequences of not completing homework on time and if appropriate impose and supervise catch-up sessions/detentions for students who do not comply
• Contact a parent/guardian by telephone or in writing when a student repeatedly fails to complete homework and each time a summative assessment task is not completed by the due date.
Students are required to:
• Allocate appropriate time to undertake personal study and complete all homework as set course.
• Independently and regularly revise work covered in class.
• Negotiate prior to the due date with each teacher if tasks cannot be completed by the due date.
Students should also:
• Learn to plan their work taking into account family, sporting, cultural and/or employment commitments and social activities as well as the commitment required for assessment timelines.
• Recognise that some subjects have more homework demands than others but that one subject should not receive so much time that others are neglected.
• Discuss any problems they have with homework or study plans with an appropriate person (e.g. parents, Mentors, subject teachers, Career Advisers, Managers, an Assistant Principal and / or the Principal).
Parents are asked to support the College by:
• Facilitating a student’s sound study habits.
• Providing notice to a subject teacher (by telephone, email or note) of any reason's for a student’s homework not being completed by the due date.
Dear parents & community members,
Another busy and successful semester of learning has concluded for the majority of our students. Congratulations to students who have made significant progress.
On Friday 25 August, there will be a Whole School Professional Development Day which has been approved by College Council & the Department of Education. There will be no classes operating. All teaching staff will be participating in a Relationship Based Learning workshop focused on refining a shared and common understanding of what quality teaching and learning looks like at Centralian Senior College. Supported study will be available for Year 12 students in the Year 12 Study Centre on this day.
To all students, families and staff have a well earnt break – with Year 12 students continuing some study, revision and catch-up if needed, as they recharge their batteries for the run down the home straight of semester 2.
