The Leland School District believes that meaningful homework assignments are necessary, and, when assigned systematically, provide additional time for learning that contributes toward improving a student's academic achievement. Homework builds on classroom work, encourages the development of self-discipline and develops responsibility, cooperation and parental relationship with the school. All administrators and teachers who are responsible for the education of Leland School District students are expected to promote these requirements in ways that are appropriate to each grade level.
