The Lafayette County School Board is considering turning away from traditional class scheduling and implementing a block schedule at the high school.
On Monday, the board voted to allow Lafayette High School principal Rodney Flowers to make a formal presentation at the Dec. 7 meeting.
Flowers gave the board a brief overview of what a four-by-four block schedule would look like and the pros and cons of having the schedule changed to the block schedule.
Flowers said he and members of his staff have visited other schools that use the block scheduling.
Four-by-four block scheduling would allow for four, 90-minute periods instead of 7 periods a day. Each year-long class only meets for one semester and each semester class only meets for a quarter. (November 2, 2010, Page 1)
