Homework Policy

Academy District Twenty believes that homework is an extension of the classroom and is a vital part of each student’s education. Homework develops study habits and self-discipline needed by all learners. It also establishes a direct line of communication which helps parents to remain involved with their child’s progress on a consistent basis. The following are minimum daily homework requirements.
