Homework

We believe that homework is an important part of the total educational program.  Homework

should be an extension of the formal instruction in school.  Extending the students’ skills and

concepts through varied practices and maintenance of skills at home is an integral and important

part of the total educational process.

 

The responsibility of homework should be a shared venture between parents, teacher(s), and

student.  The contribution of each in developing and building good study habits cannot

be overemphasized.
