Homework Guidelines

Homework is defined as academically related work assignments given to students by classroom teachers to be completed beyond regular classroom instruction time. The purpose of homework is to provide students the opportunity for meaningful practice, application, and extension of acquired knowledge. Some of the types of assignments your child might be asked to work on at home include daily review such as worksheets or studying vocabulary; independent reading of a textbook, article, or novel; completing work started in class such as a science lab; long or short term projects; and studying for tests and quizzes. Time in the classroom may be given to work on these assignments. Regardless of the form it takes, homework is an important part of the instructional program which warrants clear communication between school and home.
