Chiloquin Elementary Homework Policy
This year, Chiloquin Elementary School is adopting a new homework policy. Following the example of other schools and after our own research on the topic, we have decided that there will be no formal homework given to students this year. There is no research that supports homework increases academic performance in the elementary grades. However, still encouraging students to read at home and each grade level teacher will send out policies on this. We are also encouraging and promoting families to spend more time together doing things like playing outside, eat a healthy dinner, and get a good night’s sleep.
We believe in holding students accountable and part of that process includes finishing assigned work. If for some reason, a student doesn’t do the required work in class, the unfinished work will be sent home as homework. We want all students to be successful and we believe that this policy is part of that process. If you have any questions feel free to contact the school. We look forward to working with you this year!
