   Grade level homework is assigned by the teachers and expectations are communicated with families. Assignments will reflect a balance of practicing skills and at home reading. Time spent on homework will depend on the grade level but should not exceed an estimated ten minutes increments per grade level beginning with kindergarten and not to exceed sixty minutes for fifth grade. Students should give their best effort on homework and parents are encouraged to support their children as they complete the work. A reflection of homework completion is noted on the report card. Teachers may provide incentives for students who complete and return homework regularly.
