Learning requires a sincere commitment to work and study. Choosing to do homework is an essential part of a student’s educational development. Homework helps students improve their academic and study skills, and is critical in the reinforcement of ideas and concepts presented in class. Also, homework helps students develop responsibility, independence, perseverance, time management skills and curiosity. The Ontario Curriculum emphasizes that there is a direct relationship between effort and student achievement.
Homework will be assigned to students based upon reasonable expectations, and with the understanding that many students are involved in a variety of worthwhile activities outside of the school setting.
