Homework Policy

Homework at High Plains is an extension of classroom instruction.  Homework assignments will be differentiated to meet the needs of the student.  Homework is a vital practice that, although not part of a particular subject’s grade, impacts the success of the student.  The time frame for homework could be up to 10 minutes per grade level each day; nightly reading may be additional.  Concepts practiced for homework must have been introduced in the regular classroom, prior to being sent home.  Resource teachers (Special Education, TAG, ESL) will communicate and coordinate with the classroom teacher regarding homework from their area, but will not be in addition to the regular classroom homework assignments. Homework should include:
  • reading
  • math facts
  • skill practice from the classroom
  • incomplete classroom work
