Homework Policy

An important part of a child’s education is the extension of learning from the classroom and school to their “own” world. Homework is assigned with the intention of assisting children in the learning process. Homework is assigned for practice, for assignment and project completion, for enrichment and extension, for positive parent involvement, for test preparation, and for the use of resources outside of school. Each teacher clearly sets and communicates specific homework standards and expectations. Generally, the following can be expected: Cedar Way students usually have homework assigned Monday through Thursday, unless a test was taken that day. Primary age students can expect about 15-30 minutes of work. Intermediate age students can expect about 30-60 minutes of work. If a student is reporting that s/he does not have any homework or assignments on which s/he should be working, a parent should contact the child’s teacher, as this might be an inaccurate perception on the child’s part. All of our students should be reading, writing, and/or practicing mathematical operations each night, if not working on specific assignments.
