The block schedule for next year is something new that this staff and students have never tried before. Ms. McNeil has been showing this plan to some classes to gain students' opinions. This schedule has some pros and cons.
One of the most interesting new things that this block schedule provides is a study lab. This study lab could prove very helpful towards student athletes. Instead of the age old saying of "Oh it's fine I'll do it at home." We will have 90 minutes to catch up and go more in depth to topics that are difficult.
A block schedule is a schedule that is broken up into 90 minute intervals per class period. This is a very long time and could cause a negative affect towards students. Teenagers are known for having a short attention span and will end up missing key topics that were explained. We luckily have the opportunity to try out this new schedule February 1-4 with 4 periods a day.
As you can see the block schedule has pro and cons. You can decide whether you like or dislike by commenting here! Have a great day!
