• HOMEWORK                              
         Homework is the extension of learning experiences initiated in and continued beyond the classroom. Concepts taught in the classroom are reinforced through homework.  Homework may involve written or study work students do on their own time. It may be a tool whereby parents can participate in the student's learning experience. The practice of assigning homework is strongly encouraged and supported by the Board of Education.

    The specific objectives of homework may vary at grade levels but generally include these purposes:
    • To extend the concept of learning beyond the classroom
    • To nurture the development of good study habits
    • To encourage the use of independent research skills
    • To promote student independence, responsibility, and self-discipline
    • To develop a feeling of accomplishment and a positive self-image
    • To reinforce and enrich learning
    • To provide preparation for subsequent lessons
    • To provide for immediate reinforcement of classroom lessons
    • To provide opportunities for drill and practice
    • To serve as a means of review of classroom work
    • To provide the teacher with an ongoing assessment of student progress
