Homework Information & Policy

Issaquah Council Homework Project 

In the fall of 2012, the Issaquah School District wanted to review its homework policy. Superintendent Rasmussen and Assistant Superintendent Thiele asked the PTSA Council to partner with the district for purposes of getting parent feedback on Issaquah’s policy surrounding homework as well as the implementation of that policy in schools across the district.  Click the link above for details on the project.
