Since February of 2016, school administrators, faculty, students, and parents have participated in a review of the high school master schedule. This review was completed to ensure we provide an optimal schedule for our growing student population, and to maximise opportunities for academic intervention, enrichment and student-choice. We are pleased to announce that the new Rotating Drop Schedule will be implemented starting with the 2017-2018 school year.
Please see below for a complete timeline of the master schedule process to determine our new schedule. Additional information will be available throughout the spring semester.
This information was emailed to all students and parents in grades 8-11 on Thursday, February 9, 2017.
In selecting the new master schedule, several options were considered and vetted against the following criteria:
The following is an example of what the new schedule would look like for a typical 10th grade student:
*Flex Time will be used for CCR Curriculum, club meeting times, tutoring, students choosing to see teachers/interventions, enrichment activities, flexibility for School to Careers and Early Release, school-wide presentations. Over the next several months school administration, faculty, and student leaders will work to fine-tune this schedule to best meet the needs of all our high school students.
Frequently asked Questions:
Purpose: Review current and master schedules options to better meet the needs of our student population.
Outcome: A recommendation to keep our master schedule or to change to a new master schedule for the 2017-2018 school year.
Faculty/Community Timeline for Master Schedule Review Process
Master Schedule Review Committee consists of seventeen faculty members from JHHS and SHS including representatives from the District Office. It also includes five Student School Board members and Parent Representatives.
