We have fielded a lot of questions about our homework policy. Homework, at PS 154, has not been banned nor has it been eliminated. Our objective is to be a responsive school that meets the individual needs of our students.
While some children benefit from reviewing class work at home, others do not. As educators, we will make a determination about the most meaningful way to use homework as an instructional strategy. At minimum, every student should have a daily reading assignment. Our upper grades (4-5) classes will assign more structured work so that students can begin to develop time-management skills. Please reach out to your child’s teacher to discuss how homework fits into a daily plan.
