Why this petition matters

Started by Mark Salama

Many students are being negatively affected by the new six period a day schedule. Students are taught less every class period due to shortened class time with right under an hour of class time and are still expected to learn the same amount of material they were once taught in the old 4-period a day schedule with 80 minutes per class. Students have the same classes everyday for the most part which means they have to do homework for these same classes everyday despite also being expected to maintain their academic efforts with 1.5x the work load everyday and not having the time because of extra curricular activities, work, etc. The new schedule made it more difficult to study for tests, quizzes and be able to do homework because now students only have less than 24 hours to complete everything of that nature for their classes while with the old schedule, students had about two times the amount of time to manage their academics. Students who are enrolled in AP classes are the ones being affected the most because one gets college level work everyday and is still expected to do just as well as when they had twice the amount of time to do the assignments. Let’s bring back the old 4-period a day schedule for the sake of our academic success.

Help change Lyndhurst High School for the better
