AUSD Teachers, Parents/Guardians, and Students-

Following community interest in reviewing district homework policies and practices, AUSD is convening a homework workgroup.  This workgroup will meet monthly beginning in April 2017 (no meetings will be held during the months of July/August) and will bring together representatives from multiple stakeholder groups including teachers, parents/guardians, students, and other district personnel.  This process will continue into the 2017-18 academic school year.

The workgroup will focus on the following activities:

1.       Gather data and conduct analysis of the homework experience in AUSD

a.       Survey teachers, students, and families to examine their views and experiences with homework

b.      Review site homework policies to assess alignment across sites, consistency within sites, and adherence to stated district and site policies

c.       Review research summaries and examples of policies from other districts

2.      Develop policy recommendations to be presented to the Superintendent.

 

If you are interested in participating in the Homework Workgroup, the application can be found in English, Spanish, Chinese, Vietnamese and Tagalog at the following link: Homework Workgroup Applications
