The Octorara Area School District is requesting your participation in a survey on homework. During the district’s Comprehensive Planning process, OASD prioritized one of its goals as establishing a district system that fully ensures consistent implementation of standards aligned curricula across all schools for all students.
The district is implementing several strategies to accomplish this goal. One of these strategies has been to form a K-12 Grading/Homework committee. This committee will seek to establish grading/homework guidelines for grades K-12. These guidelines will effectively align grading practices to what students know and are able to do. The current homework policy will be revised, and grading and reporting practices will be revised to effectively communicate student progress toward grade level standards.
In order for this to take place, we need stakeholders’ valuable feedback. Parents, teachers, and secondary students will be asked to take the survey. This survey assesses your perceptions of homework as it pertains to your child.
Please click on the link below or access it on our website at https://www.octorara.k12.pa.us/ in the right-hand column under Comprehensive Planning. Please complete the survey by Friday, March 2, 1018.
We understand that families have multiple children in the district, however, you only need to consider one child as you complete the survey.
