    Homework Committee 2.6.20 At a meeting of the committee on Feb. 6, the group was asked to review survey data from RMS and RHS students on homework, and also to review the RTSD Homework Policy and Administrative Regulation prior to the meeting.

    Attendees were divided into six groups that each participated in two activities: 1. Discuss student data and parent/teacher feedback in context of RTSD Homework Policy; and 2. Compare RTSD Homework Policy to another district’s policy and provide feedback.

    After the groups completed both activities, all attendees discussed their group's findings.

    Homework Committee 1.30.20 At a committee meeting on Jan. 30, the group reviewed the goals for the committee, the history behind the RTSD Homework Policy, and the avenues the committee would explore to help guide their discussions.

    The group then heard from Mr. Jon Kleiman, Senior School Program Director at Challenge Success, and Dr. Sarah Miles, Director of Research and Programs at Challenge Success, who discussed best practices regarding homework.

    Afterwards, committee members met in small groups to provide feedback about the presentation and the reading they completed prior to the first meeting. Groups then shared out their feedback to the whole committee, which was subsequently documented for future reference.
