K-5 Parents Invited to Homework Forums

Parent Voice

Parents and guardians are invited to be a part of formalizing our new approach to homework in District 28's K-5 classrooms.

We invite you to attend one of two optional forums to learn about our research and add to the discussion, which will help to form the finalized procedures for homework to begin in the fall.

The forums will be held at 7 p.m. June 26 and 9:30 a.m. June 27 at the district office, 1475 Maple Ave., attached to Northbrook Junior High.

The goals of the forums are the following:

  • Share information from best practices as identified in research
  • Share feedback from the staff and parent surveys about homework conducted in April/May 2019
  • Share ideas and information from the Homework Task Force May 2019 meetings
  • Generate discussion around homework and how parent input can help shape the final proposed changes for homework to begin in fall 2019
  • Homework is a partnership between our schools and parents so your voice is imperative in informing the District’s future direction. Please RSVP to join us for one of the forums.
