Over the past six months we have been working to create a homework policy that balances the need for students to practice skills and examine content with the fact that today's student has many other priorities as well. As a school community we firmly believe that homework offers students the ability to practice and receive feedback from their teachers. Teachers have spent the last six months aligning their classroom instruction to this new policy. The attached policy will be in effect immediately.
