Homework is an extension of the classroom's activities and reinforces the learning process.
Each grade level has developed a policy that is specific for the students in that grade.
Parents' encouragement and support are important factors related to the manner in which a child approaches homework. Several suggestions to provide a positive approach to homework are:
Take an active interest in what your child is doing and promote good study habits.
Provide a suitable place, conducive to good learning.
Provide for homework in your daily routine.
Encourage students to seek clarification if assignments are not understood.
If a child is absent, he/she may have additional homework in order to make up classwork. According to School Board of Broward County guidelines, a child has 2 days for each day absent to complete all make-up work. In order to give teachers adequate preparation time, requests for homework should be made 24 hours prior to material pick up.
