Dear Parents and Staff,

I am writing to provide an update on the work of our Homework Policy Committee. The committee consists of approximately 90 people including parents, teachers, administrators and students. It has been meeting since early February reviewing research on best practices for homework.

We held a community update session on February 28 to provide a progress report, and to solicit additional community feedback. We will hold another community update session on Tuesday March 28, 6:30 p.m. at Peirce Middle School.


Additionally, parents and staff may provide feedback at . Thanks to all of those who have provided us with feedback as we develop a homework policy and guidelines that are meaningful and reasonable.



Dr. Jim Scanlon
