Student Resources

Based on a review of research and best practices, the staff of BESIC determined that we will no longer assign homework.  Parents who wish to extend learning opportunities at home can  contact your child’s teacher to determine the current topic of study in each content area and discuss resources that could be used at home for additional support.
