Homework is an important part of every child’s school experience. It is an opportunity to engage in learning at home and to support what is learned during the school day. Homework encourages good study habits at an early age that will help students to be successful. School staff, teachers, students and the family all play a key role in supporting homework. Positive and open school-home partnerships ensure students have the support they need to be successful.
The TDSB Homework Policy
outlines how everyone involved works together and is written based on current teaching and learning practice, research, student census data and the results of consultation with parents, educators and the community. The policy balances the time required to complete homework with extra-curricular activities and other activities that support personal and family wellness.
