Homework Policy

Homework – District Board Policy #3602 specifies that “appropriate homework should be provided for students so as to require them to work on assignments four days a week using the following suggested time blocks:
 
Kindergarten 30 minutes
First grade  30 minutes
Second grade 30 minutes
Third grade  60 minutes
4th-6th grade 60 minutes
 
“Homework should be pertinent to the needs of the student and the development of the unit. Teachers are encouraged to emphasize basic skill development (mathematics, reading, and language arts) in the assignment of homework.” The complete board policy is in the Principal’s office.
