The Department of Education is developing new homework standards for students from grade primary – 12. A new provincial homework policy will help schools be more consistent in the type of homework students receive. It will also ensure that homework is directly connected to the work students are doing in class and tailored to an individual student’s age, grade and learning needs.
The department would like your feedback on a draft set of homework standards. We want to know if you agree with the standards, and if you think they will help make homework an activity that enriches students learning.
Please take some time to complete the following questions about the draft homework standards. This site will be active for you to provide input from May 19 to June 12, 2015. Input received through the consultation will help in the development of a final policy for implementation in September 2015.
The survey can be found by clicking here: Homework Survey
If you have any questions about the consultation process please contact Dianne Marshall (Dianne.Marshall@novascotia.ca or 902-424-3448).
