The Los Angeles Unified School District will be holding public meetings to discuss a new homework policy under consideration.

The previous policy, which went into effect on July 1, caused an uproar. It stated that homework would only account for 10 percent of a student's overall grade.

Superintendent John Deasy suspended the 10-percent policy because of a lack of public input.

Under the new policy, LAUSD recommends a cap of 20 percent, along with guidelines on how much time should be spent on outside assignments.

People will be allowed to ask questions and make comments at the four scheduled meetings.
