This form is great for holding students accountable for missing work. Have the student complete the entire form, you initial it, and the student should cut it in half. The student should give the bottom portion to you (the teacher) and the top portion should go home to get signed. The student will return the signed copy the next day. You may then give them the bottom portion you were holding (just in case they lost the original) or throw the bottom portion away. This is also a great way to help keep parents informed of missing work, low grades, or other concerns.
