Board Policy Overview and Explanation
"Homework is defined as learning activities that students work on outside of the classroom. The Governing Board believes that homework should have a positive impact on student learning, while not placing an undue burden on students and families. While the role of the district is to educate students, the Board recognizes the value of extracurricular activities that challenge students and enhance thier education, along with unstructured time and adequate sleep for a healthy school/life balance. For these reasons, and using current educational research as a guide, the Board recommends that homework should be assigned in reasonable amounts that can be completed within a reasonable time frame."
