Homework

Homework is a controversial topic in schools these days and a topic that we are discussing here at Burroughs.  What should be assigned for homework?  How much homework should be expected? What should we expect from families in regards to homework?  Should homework assignments impact a student's grade? These are all questions we grapple with as we attempt to strike a balance and have homework, if assigned, be a tool that supports student growth and learning.
 
This year, our Site Council is working to create a school wide philosophy around homework.  Although we are still in the development phase of this philosophy, grade level teams are expected to be consistent with their homework policies and come to a consensus as a team about how they will handle homework. If you have questions about homework for your child, please contact your child's teacher.
