Reiterate Block Scheduling for 2018-19 School Year at Roxana School District

0 have signed. Let’s get to 500!


Roxana School District has practiced block scheduling for eighteen years, as of 2018. Changing this method would be detrimental to not only the current students enrolled, but also students who are unfamiliar with traditional scheduling when transferring from other schools. Block scheduling benefits not only the student, but also the educator because with eighty minutes of class time in a period, there is enough time for Capturing Kids Hearts (CKH), instructional time, questions about the material, as well as work/project time alotted. In addition, a brief intermission between classes bidaily is crucial to the successful completion of lengthy assignments. Juxtapose, traditional scheduling means that the above mentioned time for benefactors would be reduced by nearly half going from eighty minutes to fifty minutes of class time.
