Homework and Grading Principles

The following principles were created for building wide guidance (grades 5-8). The principles will assist us as a staff to follow common expectations that will result in more equity and clarity as it pertains to our building’s practices. Here are the agreed upon principles all staff are required to follow:  
1) Homework is necessary and expected to be completed.
2) Homework should be relevant and tied to a learning target. Connections between homework and the learning targets are discussed.
3) Students are provided feedback through teacher comments, examples, activities, reinforcement, and discussion.
4) The final class grade is comprised of a balance between homework and assessments. Assessments are weighed more than homework and make up the majority of the final grade.
