K-5 Homework Policy

Homework is regularly assigned by classroom teachers to supplement class instruction, provide additional practice, or extend learning of a particular skill or concept. Teachers will use homework as an important factor in determining student grades.

The objective of homework is to: teach students to be independent learners, give them experience on how to follow directions, make judgments and comparisons, raise additional questions for study, develop regular study habits, responsibility, and self-discipline.
