Homework assignments are given with careful attention to the meaning and purpose of the class activity and its contribution to significant learning experiences for each student. In general, an average of 40 minutes of homework per course should be anticipated each day. Specific homework expectations are described in each teacher's course syllabus. Reading assignments, projects, papers, written reports, and studying for tests and quizzes should be considered homework. All students are expected to spend the necessary time to complete homework. 

Expectations Regarding Written Assignments 

For any assignment given in any class, if there is a concern about a student's writings (i.e. suicidal ideation, homicidal references or allusions, involvement in dangerous activities, etc.) the teacher who made the assignment will refer the situation to the student’s PSS team for further review and intervention if necessary. Parents will be notified.
