In accordance with Board Policy 6154, Millard School has adopted the following Homework Plan:
The total time for student homework will be within the district adopted standards. Average minutes per night:
- Kindergarten = 15 min.
- Grades 1, 2, and 3 = 30 min.
- Grade 4 = 45 min.
Grade 5 and 6 = 60 min.
Homework will be reasonable in expectation, appropriate to the developmental needs of the students, and relevant to instruction.
Homework will be reviewed, and feedback will be given to students in a timely manner.
Students with excused absences will be allowed the same number of days as absences to complete homework.
Teachers will communicate classroom homework plans to parents and students in writing and at Back-to-School Night.
- This School Homework Plan will be re-evaluated annually and communicated to parents in our newsletter and on our website.
