Golden Hill K-8 School Homework Policy

Reseach shows that excessive homework does not correlate with increased academic achievement. Golden Hill K-8 students will have homework, but it will certainly not be excessive. Your child should read outside of school every day for 30 minutes. This can include a mixture of parents reading to children, children reading to parents, and children reading independently. Additonally, your child may recieve some work to enrich the classroom learning, and/or classwork that he/she did not complete in class.

Your child's teacher is committed to:

· Explaining and clarifying assignments with students at the time homework assignments are made.

· Evaluating and monitoring homework assignments.

· Informing parents about how their child is doing with homework assignments.

Parents are encouraged to:

· Provide a regular study place with a minimum of distraction.

· Monitor the student as needed.

· Communicate with the teacher if there are questions about homework assignments or if students have difficulty in completing assignments in a reasonable time.

· Check to see that work is completed and school materials returned.

The student is expected to:

· Inform parents when assignments are made and when they are due.

· Bring necessary materials home and return materials on time.

· Complete the assignments to the best of their ability, and on time.
