I know your hands are probably tied here, but it's crazy to spin your wheels teaching long division when they don't know their multiplication facts. If it were me, I'd (subversively, if I had to!) take a few weeks and nail the facts. I've had classes like this before, too, and instead of assigning homework problems, I assigned math fact practice, did daily speed drill assessments until at least 80% knew them...then we could move on.
