Block Schedule Survey (Parents)
One of our school goals for the upcoming school year is a comprehensive look at our current schedule. Below I have included the goal for your review. We are seeking parental input on our current scheduling system. We would appreciate your anonymous feedback. Thank you.

Goal: By the Spring of 2016, the scheduling committee will report on the effectiveness of the block schedule and examine alternatives as evidenced by the completion of a comparative analysis document and a proposal based on the data collected from research and surveys.
