• Homework Expectations
     
    Homework is an important part of your child's education.  Our district recommends that homework be given to all students at each grade level.  Schools do their best job of educating your child when they have you, the parents/guardians as partners.  Homework provides a significant opportunity for you to show your interest and to give your support.
     
    Part of the purpose of homework is to teach responsibility to the student.  Your child should assume the major responsibility for completing homework assignments.  Homework expectations will be enhanced when your child accepts responsibility for:
     
    • Understanding the assignments before leaving school.
    • Completing all assignments accurately.
    • Turning in all assignments by the due date.
    • Asking the teacher for assistance if unable to accurately complete homework assignments.
     
    Our district guidelines suggest minimum and maximum amounts of homework.  The amount of daily homework varies from 10 minutes (Kindergarten) to 50 minutes (6th grade).
     
    The following are CUSD guidelines for homework minutes:
     
    Kindergarten..................................10-15 minutes
    Grades 1 and 2..............................10-25 minutes
    Grades 3 and 4..............................20-30 minutes
    Grades 5 and 6..............................30-50 minutes
     
    Homework is recommended a maximum of four times a week and is not assigned over weekends or before holidays.
