LAUSD: New Plan Caps Homework to 20% of Grade

The proposed homework policy will be unveiled and discussed 6-7 p.m. March 1 at Walter Reed Middle School, 4525 Irvine Ave., North Hollywood.


The Contra Costa Times reports that the proposed recommendations were crafted by a 15-member committee of administrators, teachers and parents after Superintendent John Deasy suspended last year's policy that limited homework to only 10 percent of a student's grade, because of a lack of public input.

Plans now call for the recommendations, along with guidelines on how much time should be spent on outside assignments, to be unveiled during hour-long public forums that begin Thursday, and for the final policy to be approved by the school board in time for the 2012-13 school year.
