• IKB: Homework


    As long as it is properly designed, carefully planned, and aligned to the development of the individual student, homework meets a real need and has a definite place in the educational program. However, teachers and schools cannot use homework for disciplinary purposes. In addition, homework cannot be the dominating factor in interim or final grading. Teachers decide the extent and type of homework within specific instructional plans.

    Teachers assign homework to help students become more self-reliant, learn to work independently, practice and improve the skills taught in class, and complete other projects. Tasks should allow students to demonstrate mastery of content, engage in a productive struggle, and fulfill the District’s Vision for Learning. Homework also allows parents and guardians to acquaint themselves with the school program and student educational progress.
