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."
Please notify the school at least one day in advance of withdrawal. Be sure that all textbooks and library books are accounted for and that no money is owed for supplies. The transfer documentation will be issued from the office.
