You need to talk to his teacher. It could be a number of issues.
Some kids are just very slow workers. If he's working the whole time and knows how to do the work ask if he can have extra time or bring some home to finish.
It could be an attention issue. If he knows the material, but can't stay focused ask her to break the assignments down into smaller sections. If he looks at it in small chunks he may be more willing to work to get each piece done.
He could be struggling with the material. If he isn't getting his work done because he doesn't know how ask the teacher what you can do at home to help. Also request a meeting with the guidance counselor to see what type of interventions they can do to help him improve his skills.
