The Board recognizes that homework is a learning activity and an important adjunct to regular class work at all grade levels. It should increase in complexity commensurate with the maturity of the student.

Homework should be an application or adaptation of a classroom experience; it should not be assigned for disciplinary purposes.

Suggestions for homework shall be established for all grade levels in accordance with guidelines developed by the administration. Teachers shall use these guidelines, except in those specific situations where educational needs dictate otherwise. Homework assignments are to be promptly corrected by the teacher and returned to the student with appropriate notations.
