Policy 611.02


School homework is an important element in developing independent learning skills and is an integral part of the district academic program. A balance between home responsibilities, schoolwork and extra curricular activities is desirable. The assignment of homework is encouraged as beneficial to the student provided the following limitations are observed:

1. Homework should not interfere with the proper development of the student’s health.
2. Homework should not interfere with the student assuming responsibilities in the home.
3. Homework should not take so much of the student’s time that they are denied opportunities to engage in other activities.
