The purpose of homework is to practice, apply, and extend skills and content learned in class, and to prepare for tests, quizzes, and projects. Research has demonstrated that consistent high quality completion of homework assignments leads not only to increased grades in school, but also to enhanced academic achievement on standardized tests such as the PSSA. To reap the benefits of homework and maintain integrity, it is very important that STUDENTS COMPLETE THEIR HOMEWORK assignments. Parents are encouraged to review homework and projects with their children, while being careful to preserve the integrity of their children's work.
