Homework Policy

Berkeley Glenn's Homework Policy

 

Homework is to provide meaningful reinforcement of curriculum objectives andskills taught, and it is an effective means of providing consistentcommunication between school and home.

 *Homeworkshould be a review of skills taught during the classroom instructionaltime; therefore students should be able to complete homeworkindependently or with minimal assistance.

*It is important to complete and return homework assignments on time as homework will be checked.

*Homework will be focused on SOLs and four core subjects: English, Math, Social Studies, and Science.

 *Eachclassroom teacher has an established routine for assigning homework. Ifparents have questions, they should contact their children's teachers.

*Ifparents have concerns about excessive time that their child is spendingon their homework, they are encouraged to contact their children's teachers.

*Daily reading (orally, silently, or with a parent/family member) is essential to student achievement and success.
