Homework Policy

Homework is an integral part of the basic curriculum and planned by the teacher to closely correlate with classroom course development. GPA parents expect students to have some form of homework to complete each night.

Homework must be meaningful Research on homework suggests that smaller but meaningful amounts per day has a stronger effect on student achievement. For example, homework will not take more than 90 minutes, and it will develop critical understanding of the material.

Students should be encouraged to complete all homework set by their teachers. Routine homework develops the importance of good study and work habits. The encouragement of student responsibility, initiative, and motivation are additional objectives in a well-designed home/school study program.

Students are held responsible for completing their homework by the due date. Students, who do not complete their homework, may lose certain student privileges, at the teachers’ discretion.
