Our school's general education curriculum is based on the district's Course of Study, K-12 . In addition to meeting a legal requirement, the Course of Study provides information about the district’s educational programs and approved instructional materials. It also outlines state and district requirements, district cross-curricular programs, special education programs, student assessment, and more.
Horton Elementary has a school wide policy that matches thehomework policy of the district. Homework is assigned to help students improve their study skills, learnto work independently, and become more self-reliant. Students receive homework daily/weekly. Assignments include reading, math, andwritten work. The following arethe minimum guidelines for the various grade levels:
K-2 20 minutes
3-5 60 minutes
Parents are expected to supervise completion of homeworkdaily, show interest in the assignment, provide proper conditions for homestudy, and help make sure the homework gets to school.
It is the responsibility of the students to complete thehomework. We ask that the parentsee that the homework is completed, signed if asked, and returned to theteacher daily/weekly.
