"Chairman James Frey noting that the district's homework policy made no mention of how much homework could or should be assigned to individual students.
"As a result Frey said the committee's policy subcommittee would look into the matter to offer options and make recommendations to the School Committee for possible changes."
It has been my experience that there are established homework policies at the Elementary and Middle School levels, including how many minutes per week. Teachers are diligent about giving homework assignments that will fit within the time parameters. Some students (regular ed. as well as those on IEPs)need more time and accommodations are made for them.
There is nothing wrong with reinforcing lessons presented in the classroom by assigning homework!

It has been my experiance with kids in the Groton Dunstable schools that they have been assigned much less homework than I would have expected. In talking to coworkers with children in other school districts they are always amazed at how little homework my kids had.
