What is the A/B Block Schedule?
The A/B Block modifies our current Block schedule to stretch the classes out over the course of an entire year. We appreciate the benefit of the longer class periods in terms of in depth-instruction; however, we were challenged with the students not being in core classes for an entire year. Through Common Core Training, as well as our WASC Accreditation Review it was recommended to find a solution. The A/B schedule addresses this.
The A/B Block schedule will retain our 85 minute class periods. Students will attend four classes on 'A' days and then four different classes on 'B' days. In the end, students will go to each class every other day, attending class three times every six days (ABABAB). We piloted this schedule in a few classes this year with much success, and are very excited to implement it school wide for the 2015/16 school year.
