Block scheduling has been something that has helped students to keep up with work for years with what I can see. Block scheduling gives extended class time since you only attend four classes each day on a rotating basis. As a former student trying to return, block scheduling has been my reason! Seminar being implemented was a huge factor in that. It gave me an extra hour and a half to finish work and get more ahead. It also allows time to get help from teachers when necessary. Period scheduling does not allow for this and cuts into grading time and personal time for not only students, but teachers as well. I'm sure I'm not the only one who feels this way. Keep block scheduling. The extra money will be worth it for the higher education offered to the students. Do you believe in this cause? I do. I think if enough people sign this petition, we can convince administration to keep block scheduling. It is rumored that block scheduling will be changed the school year following this one to a period schedule.. Don't let this happen. Do it for the extra homework help. Do it for your future. Do it for EDUCATION. I may not attend Fraser anymore. But I plan to again and this greatly affects more students than myself. Prevent that!
