Summary

For homework to be effective, a clear, written policy should be developed that considers local needs, sound educational theories, and current research. This handbook is intended to assist school districts, particularly in Pennsylvania, in planning, developing, and implementing homework policies and guidelines. The booklet first briefly reviews the role of homework in education, then draws on the experiences of Pennsylvania's school districts to identify a number of critical factors that must be considered when developing homework policies. These factors include a consensus on homework's place in the educational process; identification of the roles of administrators, teachers, students, and parents; and procedures for policy implementation. A checklist of policy preparation activities and sample policies from three districts are also included. (PGD)
