The Governing Board strongly believes that homework is a valuable learning activity. Among its many skill development benefits include:
- The development of self-discipline, responsibility and wise use of time
- The opportunity for parents to become involved in and aware of what their children are learning
Homework is considered practice and will count for study skills assessment on report cards. Assignment of appropriate homework is encouraged, and the Governing Board will support teachers' efforts to ensure that students do not ignore their assignments.
Communication between teachers and parents regarding homework is considered essential. Parents should consult with individual teachers as to the expectations and how parents may help in this effort.
Homework will not be provided for a one-day absence. If your child will be out additional days due to an illness or an emergency, requested homework will be provided. Every effort will be made to help the student gain a solid understanding of the subject matter upon his/her return to school.
