Parents are invited to weigh in on the proposal on Thursday March 1 from 6-7 p.m. at Walter Reed Middle School, 4525 Irvine Ave.
Los Angeles Unified officials said they are trying to schedule additional forums before the policy is considered by the school board, probably in April.* The district came under fire last year when officials implemented a policy limiting homework to 10 percent of a student's grade without first seeking comments from parents.
Plans call for the policy to take effect in the fall.
*Previous LAUSD communications said that this would be the second of only two public forae.
