New Homework Policy

The Bigelow School Council has developed a new school-wide homework policy. This policy is based upon the latest research on homework, and clarifies the reasons for it, the amount of time that students should spend on homework in each grade, the responsibilities of students, teachers, and parents, and the procedures when homework is not completed. It also includes an appendix of suggestions for parents, and the School Council is finalizing a resource guide of best practices for teachers. Here is the link to it.
