At its April 16 Board meeting, TDSB trustees endorsed a new Homework Policy for implementation in September 2008, reinforcing homework as an engaging and relevant learning activity. The new policy is founded on sound teaching and learning practice, current research, the TDSB Student Census data and the results of extensive consultation with parents, educators and community. The policy balances time required to complete homework with extra curricular activities scheduled outside of the school day and activities that support personal and family wellness.
Extra Help: All TDSB schools have remedial programs, peer tutors, or Homework Clubs that you can access. Talk to your child’s teacher and principal. Many secondary schools offer extra help in skills labs and at lunchtime or after school.
