Your Vote Counts - Election 2017
Meet the Candidates!

Englewood Schools has 5 candidates running for 3 open seats. Voters will receive mail-in ballots for the 2017 election in mid-October and will need to return them by November 7, 2017.

Homework Help
Need some ideas for getting kids to do their homework? The National Association of School Psychologists has compiled a guide to help parents problem-solve some homework difficulties.

The guide includes these 4 steps:

Step 1: Find a location in the house where homework will be done.
Step 2: Set up a homework center.
Step 3: Establish a homework time.
Step 4: Establish a homework schedule.

The guide also includes information about incentive systems, to use with kids for whom "good grades" are not a sufficient reward for doing homework.
