Public meetings, hosted by the Los Angeles Unified School District, will be held to discuss a new considered homework policy.
The last policy, which went into effect on July 1, caused quite a commotion. The policy stated that homework would only account for 10 percent of a student\'s overall grade.
The policy was suspended by Superintendent John Deasy, due to lack of public input.
The school district is considering a 20-percent policy, as well as guidelines on how to use time management to help show how much time should be spent on outside assignments.
People are allowed, and recommended, to ask questions and make comments at the four scheduled meetings, as shown below.
