What information should I have when calling the Homework Hotline?
The operator will ask for your child’s name, school, and specific grade level. The operator will then ask about the specific assignment.   

What if my child forgot what homework was assigned? Will the operator be able to tell him/her what homework was assigned?

How long will it take to get assistance from the Homework Hotline operator?
The wait time will vary based on the number of calls the operator receives. You may be placed on hold until the operator can assist you.  If the number of calls are high, the operators may limit the number of problems they can address in a single call.  If you need further assistance, you may be encouraged to call back.

What should I do after I contact the Homework Hotline?
Each caller is encouraged to complete an evaluation of the Homework Hotline after each use. Your responses will be anonymous and we will use the information to improve the hotline.   The following QR code will take you to the evaluation form.
