Homework Guidelines

Homework has two important purposes:  to provide students with independent practice and supplemental learning opportunities and to provide opportunities for vital parent-school partnerships.

Our reasons for assigning homework on a regular basis are to:

  • increase learning time.
  • improve retention of learning.
  • promote development of study skills, including time management.
  • develop a student’s sense of responsibility and self-discipline.
  • inform parents about the curricula and of their child’s progress.


  • can be unfinished schoolwork, in addition to specific homework assignments.
  • can be work that is directed toward a project.
  • can be work that extends a unit or lesson.
  • should be clear and specific so that students can complete the assignment.
  • will not be assigned over vacation time.
