Homework Defined

Today, Superintendent Aguillard provided clarification for teachers and administrators on the operational definition of homework. He defined homework as the daily individual practice of skills and applications taught during class completed outside of class without threat of consequences to reinforce the mastery of standards. This does not include work at home that may be part of long-term assessments or projects. As such, it is important that students receive positive, instructive feedback on their homework to support them in their efforts to master academic skills.
