Suggested Homework Guidelines
As faculty, we believe that homework should be meaningful. Our policy is based on the premise that students should live balanced lives. We also view academic work at school and at home as a partnership between the students, parents, and faculty. Homework is an opportunity for students to develop academic skills, demonstrate a commitment to their education, build responsibility, and develop self-discipline. Completion of assignments allows students to take advantage of class time to ask clarifying questions and broaden their understanding.
If a student is spending an inordinate amount of time on work outside of the classroom, it is imperative that s/he reach out to her/his teachers.
