Homework is a constructive tool in the teaching/learning process and should be geared to the
needs and abilities of students. Purposeful assignments not only enhance student achievement,
but also develop self-discipline and associated good working habits. As an extension of the
classroom, homework must be planned and organized, must be viewed as purposeful to the
students, and should be evaluated and returned to students in a timely manner.

Teachers may give homework to students to aid in the student’s educational development.
Homework should be an application or adaptation of a classroom experience, and should not be
assigned for disciplinary purposes.

A teacher shall carefully explain to his/her students how homework assignments relate to the
grading system when deemed appropriate.
