HOMEWORK POLICY

- Greene County Tech Intermediate

 

Philosophy

  1. The educational experience is and should be extended beyond the classroom. Homework provides for learning experiences outside, in addition to the traditional classroom setting.
  2. Homework should be meaningful guided practice or directed activity based on previously introduced subjects or concepts.
  3. Homework should be graded and returned to students except for review assigned in preparation for examinations.
  4. Homework completion time and difficulty level should be based on expectations of average students.
  5. The classroom teacher will clearly define or designate a reasonable time to make up work or accept assignments (i.e., 3 days to make up 3 days absent).
  6. A student will be expected to take a test on the day he/she returns if the test has been announced prior to his/her absence.
  7. When possible (in most cases) homework should be assigned during class time allowing thorough explanation and practice time.

Amount and Sequence

Frequent homework (3-5 days per week) limited to no more than 1/2 hour per subject area.
