Homework Goal 2016-2017
In the 2016-2017 school year the District focused on homework to ensure that it is used to 1) help students develop the traits in the Essential Outcomes, 2) is assigned with full regard to the latest research, on homework and learning, and 3) is differentiated when possible. The Board approved a new homework policy at the May 10, 2017 meeting. As part of the process, research on homework was conducted and the documents and links below were created.
