District Homework Policy
The School Board of Miami-Dade County, Florida recognizes regular, purposeful homework as an essential component of the instructional process in Miami-Dade County Public Schools. Homework is an integral factor in fostering the academic achievement of students and in extending school activities into the home and the community. Regular homework provides opportunities for developmental practice, drill, the application of skills already learned, the development of independent study skills, enrichment activities, and self discipline. Homework should provide reinforcement and extension of class instruction, and should serve as a basis for further study and preparation for future class assignments.
Teachers will be responsible for:
1. Teaching independent study skills
2. Making specific assignments
3. Checking, reviewing, evaluating, and/or grading student homework, according to the teacher's individual methods, in keeping with a system that is clearly explained to the class
4. Giving feedback on homework assignments in a timely manner
5. Making instructions related to homework clear and providing, when necessary, a short period of supervised study or a period of questioning to insure that the students understand the assignment
6. Assigning students homework that includes at least 30 minutes each day devoted to reading.
Students will be responsible for:
1. Completing assigned homework as directed
2. Returning homework to the teacher by the designated time
3. Submitting homework assignments which reflect careful attention to detail and quality of work
4. Devoting at least 30 minutes to reading as part of the homework assignment
Parents/Guardians responsibilities include:
1. Indicating an interest about assignments and assisting, if possible, when requested by the child, but not to include performing the work for the child
2. Supporting the school to home communications by signing the agenda daily.
3. Assuring that students read for a period of at least 30 minutes each day in addition to any other assigned homework .
