Homework & Academic Expectations

Homework is an essential part of the learning process. Homework assignments are designed to reinforce and extend learning initiated in the classroom. Completion of routine homework fosters the development of good work habits.

We encourage the collaboration of students, teachers and parents to ensure the successful completion of assigned work. As students mature, they are more able to work independently and parents play a supportive role in promoting student responsibility. To maximize the benefit from home, a parent’s role in this process includes:

  • Establishing a time and place to complete homework.
  • Limiting interruptions during homework time.
  • Regularly communicating with teachers regarding questions or concerns.

We urge you to take an active interest in your child’s work and help ensure that assignments are completed and turned in on time. At the beginning of each year, teachers will provide guidelines regarding homework expectations in the classroom. Many teachers post information regarding homework and assignments on the Internet. Your student’s teacher will provide information on how to access the website for his/her particular class.

Please see our district's policy on homework in the Homework Brochure. Hard copies are made available at Back to School Night.
