Homework has a definite place in the Golden Springs PreK-8 educational program. It is assigned to help the student become more self-reliant; learn to work independently, improve the skills that have been taught, and to complete assigned projects. Students are assigned homework and receive credit toward a portion of their report card grades for each assignment completed. Homework has an effect both on the academic and the character sections of the report card grades. Each grade level establishes the amount of credit a student is to receive for homework completion. It is the student’s responsibility to keep an accurate record of assignments, have the necessary materials, follow study techniques outlined by the teacher, apply and practice skills learned in class, strive for the best quality of work of which he/she is capable, and to complete and return assignments on time. Parents should encourage systematic study, show interest in assignments, commend satisfactory performance, and provide the proper conditions for home study. Consistency is essential! Parents should check assignments each night for accuracy, neatness and completeness. This will ensure the development of good study habits.
