Homework Guidelines

Homework is a vital tool that can improve student achievement. When used appropriately, homework can extend classroom instruction, connect home and school, and teach valuable self-discipline strategies. When used inappropriately, homework can overwhelm students, have negative effects at home and be counterproductive.

Bloomington Public Schools formed a Homework Taskforce to establish a set of guidelines at the Elementary, Middle and High School levels. These guidelines were established to ensure there is a well-articulated plan for educators that is balanced and appropriate.
