Stone Valley Middle School Homework Plan

Focus:  Provide quality homework that supports instruction.

Grade Level Middle School Guidelines

As a guideline, homework should be assigned during the school week on a regular basis. Total homework assignments should have an estimated completion time of 1 hour and 45 minutes per night, including reading.  Advanced Math and/or electives may require additional time.

Implementation Plan:

1. Parent Communication:

Parents will be informed of our school homework policy in the following ways:  Course description and course syllabus, Schoolloop, SVMS website, Back to School Night.  Homework expectations are also included in the SVMS Timetracker that is distributed to all students.

2. How and when teachers will coordinate assignments:

Teachers collaborate with one another on a weekly basis on our adjusted Wednesdays. Homework assignments will be coordinated during Grade level and department meetings.

3. Resources that will be provided for students in order to assist them in the completion of homework:

Many resources are available to our students that assist them in completing homework:  Examples include:

  • Library availability before and after school, during lunch
  • Teacher availability before and after school
  • Two week curriculum for 6th graders (in Wheel class) which focuses on organization, time management, study skills, homework completion and turn in, strategies for student success

Superstar Information

Stone Valley SuperS.T.A.R.’s are students who demonstrate excellent academic achievement, attendance, and citizenship, and who volunteer in school and community activities.  Students are encouraged to follow the acronym S.T.A.R. at all times, which stands for STOP, THINK, ACT and REVIEW.*  We believe that students that make good decisions are on their way to becoming successful in school and in life.

New SRVUSD Volunteer Requirements

SRVUSD is implementing a new system for all adults wishing to volunteer on a school campus or drive/chaperone day and overnight field trips and athletic events. This new Volunteer Management System features a web-based app allowing the District to provide the appropriate level of clearance for school volunteers and to track the status across all schools.

The new SRVUSD Volunteer Management System includes three (3) levels of volunteer clearance and tracking:


  1. Classroom aides and other general school volunteers such as Noon Duty;
  2. Field trip drivers or sports team chaperones, and
  3. Overnight chaperones. During the online application process, you will be asked to choose the level or levels of clearance you will need based on your anticipated involvement. 

The District will NOT be asking parents to incur any of the costs associated with these clearance processes, and if you have already been fingerprinted for the purposes of volunteering in our schools, we will not ask you to do that again.

At Stone Valley ALL adult volunteers will need to go through this new process. For more information, and to begin the application process, CLICK HERE. 


At Stone Valley, we make every effort to ensure that students feel safe, secure and successful at school.  Each year we survey our students to improve our supervision as well as seek feedback on our current programs.  Some of our students have shared what they can do to stop bullying at Stone Valley:

“Stick up for other people and stand by them. Show them that they have someone to talk to.” – 7th Grade Girl

“Students can help prevent students from being bullied by standing up for them and doing what's right or making them feel good about themselves.” – 6th Grade Girl

“Tell a teacher and speak up.” – 7th Grade Boy

“Students can help other students from being bullied by letting teachers know if they see someone being bullied.” – 7thGrade Girl

All students, employees, parents and community members should report incidents of suspected bullying immediately to Mr. McElroy at smcelro@srvusd.net.  An investigation will be conducted to determine if bullying occurred and the corrective action needed.
