Governing Board Policy
MPS recognizes the value of homework and believes the purpose of homework should be to:
*Practice or reinforce acquired skills and knowledge
*Complete unfinished classroom assignments
*Make up work missed during absences from the classroom
*Provide an opportunity for the application of skills and knowledge through extension assignments.
*Develop regular study habits, personal responsibility, and time management skills
Homework assignments should reinforce learning objectives. Homework should not be used as a punishment.
MPS believes, as research supports, that the time required to complete assignments will vary depending on each student’s study habits, academic skills, and selected course load. However, a typical guideline to follow is: approximately 10 minutes per grade per night for K/1st – 6th grade students.
