Committee Community Update - February

Posted by Dr. Jim Scanlon on 2/22/2017

Dear Parents,

As you know we’ve formed a homework committee of parents, staff, and students to revise our homework policy. On Tuesday, February 28th, the Homework Committee will host a Community Update Meeting at Peirce Middle School from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. All are invited to attend.

Our homework committee met twice this month and has been discussing research on homework. We have begun the process of developing strategies to support a revised homework policy and want to provide an update on our progress. The February 28 meeting will also be an opportunity for parents to provide feedback on our work. Additionally, parents and staff may provide feedback at homeworkfeedback@wcasd.net Comments will be forwarded to the committee.

We will send updated information via email and post information on our website about the committee’s work after the February 28 meeting.

Thank you for your help with this process as we develop a homework policy that provides meaningful and reasonable guidelines for assigning homework to students at all grade levels.

Sincerely,

Dr. Jim Scanlon
Superintendent
