Homework

 

Chicago Public Schools mandates that homework be assigned daily to students. Homework consists of meaningful assignments for completion during out-of-class time. Assignments for homework are based on classroom instructional activities and serve as motivation for further learning. Students are required to complete all assignments given to them while serving out-of-school or in-school suspension.

 

The following are the average time allocations for teacher-directed homework assignments:

 

 Kindergarten 15 minutes per day

 

 Grades 1 – 3 30 minutes per day

 

 Grades 4 – 6 45 minutes per day

 

 Grades 7 – 8 90 minutes per day
