Online learning has been rough for students and teachers at LICHS. Many students are behind on assignments, and with the current schedule, don't have any time to catch up on missing work or get extra help. In fact, with the lack of additional assistance, many students have found they need to teach themselves the material, and in some instances, this has led to lower grades. Not only will a schedule change help students, but it could benefit teachers as well. They would have more time to plan lessons and grade assignments so that they aren't overwhelmed by the end of the marking period.

Here are some things that members of the LICHS community are saying:

"Having a day to talk to teachers, or just to not do anything as a 'break day' would help me tremendously and I can it imagine would help others." - Peter Garcia Audersch, Grade 9

"Office hours could really help me because I have a learning disability, and I get distracted very easily, especially at home. This can allow me to grow with my peers at the best rate possible." - Nicole Koutsilianos, Grade 12

"Last year and the beginning of this year I used Fridays to catch up on work and complete assignments." - Anonymous, Grade 11

After talking to a number of students and teachers, it appears that many members of our community agree that reverting back to office hours on Fridays would be helpful and that this matter requires more attention. The beginning of the new semester provides us with an opportunity to change the schedule and make school a more positive experience for students and teachers alike at LICHS.
