The Plaquemines 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 clearly assigned and carefully evaluated for the student's benefit.  It shall not be given as busy work or as punishment.
