Homework Policy

Homework is designed to continue the learning process by challenging each child to study independently. It provides an extension of activities begun in the classroom by the students under the guidance and direction of their teachers.

The teacher will carefully plan homework assignments; explain and demonstrate to the students in class what each assignment involves, examine, correct, and return each assignment completed by a student; and inform parents promptly if homework assignments are not properly completed.

The parents/guardians of a child should help the student develop good home study habits by setting a side appropriate time periods; showing an interest in and willingness to assist their child with assignments; providing a suitable space for study; helping students to budget time between long-term and short-term assignments; and by encouraging their child to seek individual assistance from teachers when assignments are difficult.
