Dear J.L. Mudd Families,
The Read-A-Thon was very successful! Thank you for your continued support of our J.L. Mudd Community!
This week, I just have a couple of reminders. Please pay close attention to the weather forecast. We are in that time of year when temperatures can change drastically from day to day. Students need to be appropriately dressed for each day. As the days get shorter, it is also easy to lose track of time. Please be mindful of your child's attendance. We have a goal for 95% of our students to be in school from bell to bell (9 am - 4 pm). Being in the classroom has the greatest impact on a students' educational growth!
Friday, Oct. 6 is Family Game Night. This is a completely free evening! I encourage families to attend and enjoy the evening playing games as a family.
As always, if you have any concerns or celebrations, please don't hesitate to contact me.
J. L. Mudd

Elementary Parent Handbook
The Board of Education recognizes that homework can be a valuable learning tool when a student clearly understands the assignment and when that assignment is geared to the ability level and learning style of the individual student. All of the following information comes from Board Policy IKB, and Homework Time Guidelines IKB-R.
The purposes of homework are:
To support and strengthen curricular goals
To provide practice and application of skills
To check for understanding
To inform teacher practice
Teachers can fulfill these purposes by assigning three types of homework:
Practice Exercises - Opportunities to apply new knowledge or to reinforce newly acquired skills.
Preparatory Work - requires obtaining background information on a unit of study to be prepared for the following day’s class.
Extension Assignments - the pursuit of knowledge individually and imaginatively.
The following time guidelines are maximum nightly guidelines. Homework is not required on a nightly basis nor should teachers interpret the guidelines to mean that it is appropriate to skip one day and assign twice as much the following. Teachers should avoid assigning homework on weekends and holidays, except for long term projects and tests.
It is important for your child to have a specific time and quiet place to complete homework. Your support of this process will have a positive impact on the development of your child’s basic study habits.
Grade Recommended Maximum Amount of Time
K-1 5 to 10 Minutes
2-3 10 to 30 Minutes
4-5 30 to 50 Minutes

District Assessment Plan
The superintendent or designee shall ensure that the district has a written assessment plan that shall test competency in the subject areas of English, reading, language arts, science, mathematics, social studies and civics, as required by law. The purposes of the districtwide assessment plan are to facilitate and provide information for the following:
1. Student Achievement - To produce information about relative student achievement so that parents/guardians, students, and teachers can monitor academic progress.
2. Student Guidance - To serve as a tool implementing the district’s student guidance program.
3. Instructional Change - To provide data which will assist in the preparation of recommendations for instructional program changes to:
a. Help teachers with instructional decisions, plans and changes regarding classroom objectives and program implementation;
b. Help the professional staff formulate and recommend instructional policy; and
c. Help the Board of Education adopt instructional policies.
4. School and District Assessment - To provide indicators of the progress of the district and individual schools toward established goals.
5. Accreditation – To ensure the district maintains accreditation.
The district will use assessments as one indication of the success and quality of the district’s education program. Further, the Board recognizes its obligation to provide for and administer assessments as required by law. The Board directs the superintendent or designee to create procedures governing assessments consistent with law and Board policy. In cooperation with the administration and instructional staff, the Board will regularly review student performance data and use this information to evaluate the effectiveness of the district’s instructional programs, making adjustments as necessary.
The district will comply with all assessment requirements for students with disabilities mandated by federal and state law, including the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA).
In order to achieve the purposes of the student assessment program, the district requires all enrolled students to participate in all applicable aspects of the assessment program.
