Required Student Materials

All Bancroft students must bring all materials required by their teachers on a daily basis.
Report Cards

Progress reports are issued approximately five weeks after the start of the semester.  Midterm and final grades are given at the 10-week and 20-week points, respectively.  Teachers will send home other notices of progress as appropriate. Parent conferences may be requested at any time.

Textbooks are distributed at the beginning of the school year. Textbooks must be covered.  Book covers are available in the Main Office.  Worn out book covers need to be replaced immediately. The teacher's name and student's name must be written on the inside cover of the book.

Students must pay for lost or damaged textbooks.  Payment must be made before the student can be issued a replacement book.  Students must clear all textbook debts in order to receive the final report card, obtain final clearance when checking out of school, or obtain eligibility for culmination.

Middle School students may have homework from 1 to 2 hours each night.  Additionally,
students will also be assigned book reports and special projects.  In addition, all students should read for pleasure a minimum of 20 minutes each night.  The State of California recommends 10.
