Homework Policy

Rolando Park Elementary upholds the San Diego Unified School District homework policy. Meaningful homework is assigned on a regular basis to reinforce or extend subject matter, to develop good study habits, to encourage responsibility, and to provide families with an opportunity to monitor their child's work. The Rolando Park staff believes that homework can help young students develop good study habits, help students recognize that they can learn at home as well as at school, and help foster independent learning and responsible character traits.

Students at Rolando Park will be assigned homework under the following guidelines:
  • Reading Log: all students are expected to read or be read to every night and to keep track of their reading. Teachers provide a log for this purpose. Nightly reading times are as follows:
    • Kindergarten: 10 minutes
    • 1st grade: 15 minutes
    • 2nd & 3rd grades: 20 minutes
    • 4th grade: 25 minutes
    • 5th grade: 30 minutes
  • Mathematics: 4 times/week
  • Literacy: 4 times/week
    • Spelling
    • Phonics
    • Writing
    • Vocabulary
  • Projects as assigned

To avoid possible negative effects of homework, teachers will take into account the unique needs and circumstances of their students. It is the student's responsibility to strive to do his/her best and to complete all assignments on time. Families should encourage systematic study and provide the proper conditions for doing homework effectively. It is the responsibility of the child to see that the homework is completed, signed (if required), and returned to the teacher.
