Homework Committee


Importance of homework
Homework is an important part of every child’s school experience. It is an opportunity to engage the students in learning at home and to support what is learned during the school day. Homework encourages good study habits at an early age that will help students to be successful.
Homework Committee of our school
Every member of School staff, teachers, students and family plays a key role in supporting homework. Positive and open school-home partnerships ensure students have the support at home to be successful. So to have a good co-ordination, a committee has been formed in our school which includes Principal, Parents, subject Heads and staff members of various grades to make sure that the student is not pressurised due to the homework and it is also optimum. It is made sure through monitoring that the homework is creative and provokes interest for the students of various grades.
No homework policy for upper primary classes
Central Board of Secondary Education has issued a notice implementing no homework policy diligently for Classes I and II. Our school strictly adheres to the CBSE guidelines and implemented no homework rule for Class 1 and 2. Let kids nurture the value and education merely by observation at home. The teachers are involved in making the children practise the taught portions.
Grades 3-5
Teachers are suggested to give homework that provokes interest, exploration to find new things. Homework also includes the aspect of bringing the best possible outcome from the students.
Grades 6-8
We believe that the school is the first place where the student undergoes socialisation. Teachers are suggested to give application type homework like projects, activity so that the children can relate it to their everyday life. It also improves their problem solving skills. General homework is also given to provoke interpersonal skills and socialisation.
Homework rules for teachers
1. Teachers should mention assignments in class and post estimated time of completion with the assignment on Blackboard by the end of the school day.
2. There should be no test or quiz on the day returning back from Thanksgiving, winter, or spring break.
3. Students should have the ability to report anonymously violations of the homework policy.
4. Publish homework expectations for all courses.
5. Teachers should state objectives for each homework assignment. Students with an A in the course should not be required to submit daily homework assignments.
6. The Administration should deal directly and in a timely manner with teachers when there are violations of the homework policy, or when there are perceived problems regarding their handling of homework.
7. Teachers should be flexible with respect to how many and which assignments are graded

Homework, when designed and implemented properly, is a valuable tool for learning.
