The Board of Trustees recognizes the purpose of meaningful homework assignments that include practicing a learned skill, extension of a skill; and helping students develop responsibility, good study habits, and self-discipline. Parents have every right to expect a general school-wide homework policy that promotes academic achievement, accountability, and responsibility. Professional school staff will make informed judgements regarding homework that take into consideration the increased demands on the non-school lives of children and home situations.
It is recognized that there are many meaningful learning experiences and responsibilities for students outside the school days, and teachers should be considerate of these activities.
