Oregon-Davis School Corporation
Administrative Guidelines


The following guidelines have been developed to assist principals in working with staff to establish appropriate homework assignments:



All homework assignments should have a specific purpose related to the learning objectives of a program or course.



Homework assignments should be appropriate to the grade level and the abilities of the students involved.



Assignments should involve application of knowledge, reinforcement of communication, research and other skills, and should provide experiences which strengthen attitudes and allow for creativity.



The purpose of homework, in terms of the goals of a program, should be clear to the student when assigned, the work corrected when returned, and both the strengths and weaknesses of his/her work communicated in ways which provide for improved performance.



The time limits for the completion of homework should include a reasonable time for make-up of missed homework assignments and/or improvements based on teacher comments.
