Homework policy: What you need to know
Every homework assignment must be meaningful and appropriate for the individual child and must not simply provide additional work. Homework may include memorization, practice exercises, outside reading, art projects or family activities. Three major purposes for the use of homework may include:
Students should be encouraged to develop independent study habits, and parents are encouraged and given opportunities to become involved in their child’s education. The Dan O. Root II staff has developed an overall school plan for homework assignments, which suggests the total number of minutes per day allocated for each grade level. The responsibilities of the teacher, student and parent are also included.
The homework time allocations are 10-30 minutes for K-3 and 40-60 minutes for grades 4-6. Please note this does NOT include the required independent reading that should occur each evening.
