According to district policy, students who are involved in special programs are not required to make up assignments missed while attending alternative classes. However, work that is assigned as homework is to be completed by SEARCH students. SEARCH students are responsible for knowing the contenct that is covered in the classroom while they are gone, attending SEARCH class.
My suggestion is, that the SEARCH student meet with the teachers briefly and make sure they know what occurred while they were out of the regular classroom. I would even encourage the students to get any handouts, worksheets, and other assignments and complete as least a portion of the assignment.
