Homework may serve multiple purposes: to work toward mastery or extend knowledge of standards already addressed in class, to prepare for a new skill or concept, and to develop positive work habits. The specific type and amount of homework are determined at the site level. Principals are responsible for ensuring that teachers assign appropriate homework and provide clear guidelines and relevant, immediate feedback to students. Homework shall not be assigned as punishment.
