Homework Survey

The Department of Education and Early Childhood Development introduced a new Action Plan for Education in January. It was based on feedback from more than 19,000 Nova Scotians who participated in a survey last year, hosted by the Minister’s Panel on Education. The Action Plan focusses on renewing, refocussing and rebuilding the education system.

As part of this work, the department is developing new homework standards for students from grade primary – 12. A new provincial homework policy will help schools be more consistent in the type of homework students receive. It will also ensure that homework is directly connected to the work students are doing in class and tailored to an individual student’s age, grade and learning needs.  

The department would like your feedback on a draft set of homework standards. Please see the link to complete the survey:

Long Range Outlook

Nova Scotia school boards are required to share information about their schools, and their education programs and services in a document called the Long-Range Outlook (Outlook). The purpose of the Outlook is to help school boards and school communities have more informed discussions about the future of their schools, and the programs and services they offer. School boards have until April 30, 2015 to complete this document and post it on their website for public feedback. For more information, visit the Halifax Regional School Board website at:
