IUSD school board approves revised homework policy

The IUSD Board of Education approved the second reading and adoption of a revised districtwide homework policy on Tuesday night.

The new policy calls for site-specific plans based on nine newly established foundational principles to ensure that homework is purposeful, reasonable in scale and aligned with the educational objectives and needs of each student.

The plan is based on the work of IUSD’s Curriculum Council, which surveyed thousands of parents, students and staff about home studies and later engaged in two daylong sessions to develop recommendations.
