603.7 - Homework

Homework is defined as out-of-class assignments that may be considered as extensions and enrichment of the regular classroom instructional program, as reinforcement of newly acquired skills, as application of recent learning, or as preparation for further learning.

Three basic types of homework (practice, preparation, and extension) should be intentionally designed for students with the following purposes considered:

  1. Practice: To provide students an opportunity to reinforce newly acquired skills or apply recent learning.
  2. Preparation: To have the student obtain sufficient background information to be prepared for the next day’s instruction.
  3. Extension: To foster student initiative for learning through individual applications, research, and study.

Building principals will collaborate by level in the development of homework assignment guidelines that fulfill the intent of this policy and articulate to the next level the district’s mission to Inspire Learning, Unlock Potential, and Empower Achievement.
