Home needed for autistic orphaned teens

Oxford School District’s behaviorist analyst Denise Collier has been caring for two autistic teenage boys since their mother died in November. She’s hoping someone will step up to take at least the higher functioning boy into their home and become his foster parents before they are turned back over to the state on Jan. 4. (December 23, 2010, Page 1A)

          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)
