While the implementation of a six-period school day with a common planning for teachers is understandable in its premise, this alteration to scheduling has caused numerous complications for students throughout all grade levels. Forefrontally, by eliminating the seventh period which was in place until the start of this school year, students are now unable to both complete their necessary core classes and take part in the many electives Suwannee High School has to offer, the majority of which provide industry certifications. In more ways than one, this evident downfall of the shortened schedule and school day has lead to a multitude of students, who have an excess of classes that must be taken in order to receive a diploma, to miss out on the real-world applications of the CTE courses offered by the high school. Furthermore, this change has lead to students which choose to take part in a more rigorous course load, being denied the opportunity to take advantage of certain AP and dual enrollment courses, due to the length of these classes beyond the typical single class period. This downfall of the current scheduling in place is ultimately why this petition is being composed, as a tangible outcry for the reinstitution of seven-period days has been witnessed by guidance counselors, teachers, and most overarchingly the student body. Through the reimplementation of this much more favorable approach to scheduling, students will be equipped once again with a ceaseless array of class options, and a more compounded delve into the numerous academic opportunities of Suwannee High School.
