HOMEWORK

Broward County School Board Policy states: "The Board recognizes the importance of assigning meaningful and quality homework to students. Research indicates that schools in which homework is routinely assigned and assessed tend to have higher achieving students. Homework fosters student achievement, independence, and responsibility, and serves as a vital link between the school and home. Therefore, it is the policy of Broward County Schools that meaningful and quality homework is required at all grade levels in all schools." The type of homework and amount assigned shall be consistent with the ability level of the student as well as his/her age and grade level.

   

Parent/Teacher Conferences

Parent/teacher conferences are always encouraged. Teachers are available for conferences before and after school. Please submit your requests for conferences in writing to the teachers or call the school to schedule an appointment. Parents must sign in the office entering the building so that the office can notify the teacher of their arrival. At least two parent conferences per year are required.
