Homework Policy

  • Policy Code: 3135 Homework


    The board recognizes the importance of homework in supplementing classroom instruction and furthering the goals of the educational program.  Homework reinforces learning and stimulates independence, responsibility, and self-direction.

    Homework assignments should provide practice of skills that already have been taught in class. Teachers should take into consideration the accessibility differences in financial, educational, and technological resources of students and their parents or guardians when making assignments.  In addition, homework assignments should improve a student's ability to work independently.  Assignments shall be reasonable in the amount of time necessary to complete the tasks in light of the age and maturity of students and other assignments given to the students.  Parental concerns regarding homework should be addressed to the teacher.  Principals will be responsible for ensuring that homework assignments are made in accordance with this policy.
