Pinellas County Schools: Keep a ABC Schedule with CTSS

Matthew Cortez started this petition to Pinellas County Schools Pinellas County School Board

We need an ABC schedule. Plain and simple. 

We, as students and future citizens of the world, depend heavily on the time given each day. The International Baccalaureate program aims to "to develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people." As it is well known, IB students are given a TREMENDOUS amount of homework and are often found spending their time to complete the work. 

If the schedule were to change to AB without a CTSS, we would be swamped and be driven to the extremes. The students that the IB Program enrolls are ambitious. We want to go to an Ivy League school. We want to be the best students and citizens that we can possibly be. That means that we are spending extra time out of class to learn. That means that we are changing the world, one community service at a time. That means that we are extending our abilities to the world. 

But how would we be able to achieve this with very limited time? Some students' families depend on a job after-school. Many students are amazing athletes and practice for many hours after school. Additionally, we must always break away from the health recommendation of 8 hours of sleep. 8 hours of sleep will seem like a mirage our eyes.

In brief, taking away the ABC schedule and a CTSS will hinder the ability of IB students to fully function and reach the best of our abilities.
