Course of Study
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.
School and district policies require homework and outside reading on a regular basis. Each teacher has a homework policy that meets these requirements. Your child will bring home a copy of the policy for his or her classroom during the first few weeks of school.
A committee of parents, teachers, and administrators, taking into consideration individual differences of students, established the following times as minimum minutes per night of homework for each child.
Kindergarten 15 minutes
First Grade 20 minutes
Second Grade 25 minutes
Third Grade 30 minutes
Fourth Grade 40 minutes
Fifth Grade 40 minutes
Sixth Grade 45 minutes
We would appreciate your cooperation in seeing assignments are completed and sent back to school. Some teachers may have special requests such as a signature, packets to be completed during the week, parental assistance, etc.
