Policy Topic Description:
This policy is intended to act as a guide for Homework to use at Indian Hills Elementary School.
Homework should only be used to reinforce skills that have already been taught in the classroom. Grade level teams need to collaborate on the amount of homework students are given. Research states that the recommended amount of homework given to students is 10 minutes per grade level. For example, a second grader should have 20 minutes of homework each night. Reading should always be a part of homework. Students need to read with their parent, to self, or with someone else in their family.
