Homework Policies

CCC Homework Policy

Our homework policy is designed to provide students with the opportunity to revisit concepts covered in class, enrich understanding, and build good study habits.

Unless otherwise noted, assignments should be completed independently by students. Provide a regularly scheduled time and place to do homework and ensure all necessary materials are available.

Homework will adhere to the LAUSD Bulletin 3491.1, which is available at www.lausd.net and www.carpentercharter.org. Time guidelines for each grade level are below; note that time limits include routine nightly work, studying, and assigned reading.

Carpenter Homework Time Guidelines (Monday-Thursday):

Kindergarten 15-20 minutes per day
Grades 1-2 30-35 minutes per day
Grades 3-4 35-45 minutes per day
Grades 5-6 50-60 minutes per day

Once your child has worked for the amount of time appropriate for the grade level, s/he may stop working; reassure your child that s/he has achieved the daily homework goal. The district policy minutes refer to focused work time; students must learn to manage their time effectively. A child who is unable to finish an assignment may turn it in incomplete with a brief written explanation from a parent or guardian.

Long-term projects may occasionally require additional homework minutes. Parents will be notified of the goals and timeline of these assignments. Whenever possible, students will have the opportunity to work on projects in class or during nightly homework time.

We welcome your concerns about your child’s work. Homework is designed to be a positive aspect of the learning process. Homework will be modified as necessary by classroom teachers to meet individual needs. Please do not hesitate to contact your child's teacher if you have any questions about homework.
