Advocate for a more family-friendly USD 227 by signing the No Homework Policy Petition

USD 227 has one of the longest school days in the state. Implementing longer school days was a great way to improve the budget. It also offers longer Christmas and summer breaks. However, the 7.66 hour school day is mentally, physically and emotionally taxing on our children. Adding in extra-curricular activities and homework to these extended school days makes student work-weeks in Hodgeman County longer than overworked adults. It also leaves very little time for families to spend together.

Why No Homework?

Research shows that there is little or no relationship between homework and academic achievement. Eliminating traditional homework may even improve academic performance.

Why More Family Time?

Family time improves communication and lowers stress hormones. It also improves academic performance.
