Homework

District Homework Policy

Homework is defined as the time students spend outside the classroom in assigned learning activities. The purpose of homework is to practice and to extend knowledge and skill. Research supports that student learning is positively affected when homework assignments are purposeful and engaging, and are appropriate in quality and quantity (see SRVUSD Board Policy 6154).
 

 

On June 23, 2015, the SRVUSD Board of Education adopted a new Homework/Make-Up Work Board Policy and Administrative Regulation. To view the Board Policy and Administrative Regulation in their entirety, click on the links below:

Greenbrook Homework Policy

The Greenbrook staff supports required after school learning activities that are developmentally appropriate, meaningful, purposeful, and designed for all students to access independently. The activities assigned by teachers are thoughtfully selected to build on skills students have been taught in class as to enrich and solidify learning outcomes. The amount of time students engage in after school learning activities should not exceed the minutes designated in board policy.

 

The Greenbrook staff also believes that it might be necessary to individualize the assigned activities based on student needs. We want to work collaboratively with families to ensure students feel successful in expected enrichment activities. Furthermore, the staff supports family priorities after school and strives to provide a healthy balance between family time and required after school activities.
