Homework shall be an opportunity for students to practice skills and activities, prepare for class activities, to organize and discuss ideas, to review materials, to become acquainted with resources, and to make up incomplete assignments.
In giving school assignments, licensed staff members should consider the age, grade level and maturity of the students and the assignments in other classes in which the student is participating. Guidelines regarding homework for all grade levels shall be developed and shared with students and parents.
