SHERIDAN PUBLIC SCHOOLS

Home of the PANTHERS!

In order to meet our new Montana Common Core Standards and the rigorous expectations these standards bring to the District, the following DAILY homework expectations were defined by our English, math, social studies, science, and elective teachers K-12.
 
First Grade:  Weekly spelling list, daily leveled book to read to the family.
 
Second Grade:  Weekly spelling list, daily leveled book to read to the family.
 
Third Grade:  Weekly spelling list, daily leveled book to read to the family, study for chapter tests.
 
Fourth Grade:  30 - 50 minutes depending on efficient use of class time.
 
Fifth Grade:  30 - 50 minutes depending on efficient use of class time.
 
Sixth Grade:  60 minutes depending on efficient use of class time.
 
Seventh Grade:  English - 30 minutes; math - 30 minutes; social studies - 20 minutes. 
 
Eighth Grade:  English - 30 minutes; math - 30 minutes; social studies - 20 minutes.
 
Freshman:   English - 20-30 minutes; math - 45 minutes; social studies - 20 minutes, science - 20 minutes.
 
Sophomore:  English - 40 minutes; math - 45 minutes; social studies - 20 minutes, science - 20 minutes.
 
Junior:  English - 50 minutes; math - 60 minutes; social studies - 25 minutes, science - 60 minutes.
 
Senior:  English - 30-40 minutes; math - 60 minutes; social studies - 30 minutes; science - 60 minutes.
 
When a student is absent, they have two days for each day absent to make-up an assignment.  These additional assignments will add additional homework time.
 
Periodically, the elective classes will also give a homework assignment.   These teachers will coordinate with the core subject teachers to make homework time manageable.
 
When students attend activities, such as band/choir or FFA/FCCLA, the students will still be expected to complete the assignment that was given while they were absent.
 
Again, if a student stays focused on the class assignment, they may be able to complete a large portion of the assignment in class.  If they do not remain focused, they may have more homework than other students.
 
The daily homework times are only meant to be a guide and may vary depending on the current class topic and may change / be adjusted at the teacher's discretion.
