Math Homework Policy

  • Amount of Homework to expect each night = 20-30 minutes
  • Homework is a means for students to practice their learning and therefore will not be utilized when determining a student’s proficiency level. Students will receive feedback on their homework and completion of it will be monitored.
  • If a student works on homework for more than 45 minutes, they should bring a list of questions and evidence of their attempted work.
  • No late homework will be accepted after the next unit test is given.
