Homework consists of tasks that teachers assign to students and are meant to be carried out during non-class hours. The intent of homework is to ensure student learning of certain concepts and/or skills found in the written and taught curriculum. Homework is beneficial as long as teachers exercise their professional judgment and use their knowledge of developmental levels to guide their practices and expectations. Homework should be aligned with district-approved standards and indicators and course outcomes.

Teachers are expected to assign homework in a responsible manner. Teachers will use professional judgment in determining the length, difficulty, and student readiness to proceed with homework assignments. Whenever possible, teachers should collaborate on the amount of homework assigned on a given evening so as not to overburden the student with time spent doing homework. With the complexities of curriculum and the high expectations for student achievement, school personnel are directed in the following ways:

I. District-sanctioned practices for the elementary and middle school levels include:

A. Homework assignments shall be kept to a minimal amount on Wednesday evening, Family Night.

B. Teachers shall not schedule examinations for Thursday.

II. District-sanctioned practices for the high school level include:

A. Homework assignments shall be kept to a minimal amount on Wednesday evening, Family Night.

B. With at least two (2) days notice, teachers may schedule examinations for Thursday.
