            LHS moves closer to block schedule

            In a polling of the teachers at Lafayette High School, the majority are in favor of the school implementing a four-by-four block schedule.

            Principal Rodney Flowers reported Tuesday to the Lafayette County School Board that 25 teachers polled support the change while four teachers were against moving to a block schedule. Eight teachers responded they were neutral about it and might be for it if they had more information.

            Four-by-four block scheduling would allow for four, 94-minute periods instead of 7 periods a day. Each year-long class only meets for one semester and each semester class only meets for nine weeks. (December 8, 2010, Page 1)
