• Everyone, your homework is to continue working on your Edgenuity coursework for your grade level. It is best to accomplish one or two tasks per day in Edgenuity so that you will be able to complete the assignments by the end of the semester.


    DPS Homework Policy:

    Homework - Regulation


    The amount of homework and the time required to complete it will vary.  However, the average time required for most students to complete assignments each evening will conform to that designated below:


    Student's Time Required

    Grades 9 - 12 should allot 30 minutes per teacher


    General Information

    • Homework may not be used as a form of punishment.

    • Homework assignments should not be made over extended holiday periods.

    • All homework assignments should be independent activities that most students can complete without assistance from parents/guardians or other adults.


    Excused Absences


    Students who do not complete homework assignments due to excused absences from school will be given a reasonable amount of time to complete those homework assignments made during their absence.


    • In high school, it is the responsibility of the student to secure and complete the missed homework assignments in consultation with the teacher.  Students have five (5) school days to get their assignments from teachers upon return.



    Homework provides an essential communication link between the school and the home.  One measure of a program or course is the quality of the work done at home by the student.  A strong home-school partnership with many lasting benefits for the individual student and the student’s family can be greatly enhanced by a sound program of homework.  In addition, homework should be an important tool in developing independent thought, self-direction, and self-discipline.  It assists the student in developing good work habits and the wise use of time.


    Guidelines for homework include:

    • Homework should be assigned after an introduction and thorough explanation of the skills necessary to successfully complete the assignment.
