Broward County’s 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. Homework standards and procedures shall be established by each School
    Advisory Council.”
