FRAMINGHAM – Framingham Superintendent of Schools is looking to connect his public school district with its families but having four nights in the 180-school year with no homework or limited homework assignments.
“Among the goals that I have set out for the district this year, particularly as they relate to improving and nurturing healthy relationships among our students and families, is the idea of Family, Friends, & Neighbors Days,” said Tremblay.
“In my vision of these days, we would limit – or simply not assign – homework and we would avoid scheduling athletic practices/games, music rehearsals, and other school-driven commitments on family time in exchange for students to be afforded that time to engage with their family, friends, and neighbors – a little bit old school, I know,” said Tremblay.
“So, to the extent you can help realize this vision – I thank you in advance,” Tremblay wrote to staff today.
