The Richland Parish School Board believes homework should be for well-defined purposes and reasons which the teacher and students understand.  It should be used as a teaching tool only, and should be of such nature that the students can be expected to accomplish it independently, or with very little help from parents or siblings.  Homework should be an application of a classroom experience; it should not be assigned for disciplinary purposes.  Assignments before vacations and weekends should be avoided.


Homework should be clearly assigned and carefully evaluated for the student's benefit.
