JHHS announces new daily schedule for 2017-18 school year
Thursday, February 9th, 2017

Dear  Parents/Guardians:


 

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 the JHHS website for a complete timeline of the master schedule process to determine our new schedule. Additional information will be available throughout the spring semester.


 

In selecting the new master schedule, several options were considered and vetted against the following criteria:

  • Student and learning focused schedule

  • Potential budget considerations in changing Wyoming economy

  • College and career readiness

  • Teacher and staff planning and learning considerations

  • Other considerations such as  increasing student population, during the school day intervention (student/teacher review time),  multiple lunches, shared classroom use, club meetings, and activities/athletic schedules.


 

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:

  • Will there be an early release option?  Y es, we will maintain early release options for students.

  • Why have two lunches?   Projected enrollment increases, providing everyone a space for lunch.

  • Why are we changing? To maximize time for student learning.

  • Are the minutes okay?   Yes, overall student contact minutes will match our current schedule and surpass Wyoming Department of Education (WDE) requirements of 1100 hours.

  • What will you do with "flex" time?   Flex time will fit: CCR curriculum, club meeting times, tutoring, students choosing to see teachers/interventions, enrichment activities, flexibility for School to Careers and Early Release, and school-wide presentations.

  • Will you still have AP classes?   AP classes will remain consistent with ability to continue to grow.

  • What advanced planning documents can you provide?   Students and parents will have a year-long calendar of the school days, calendars for flex days and strategies of how students can plan their week of classes.

Queridos padres/tutores:

Desde febrero de 2016, los administradores del colegio, el profesorado, los estudiantes y padres han participado en la revisión del calendario principal del colegio secundario. Esta revisión fue realizada para asegurarnos de brindar un horario óptimo para nuestra creciente población estudiantil, y para maximizar las oportunidades de intervención académica, enriquecimiento y de elección del estudiante. Nos complace anunciar que el nuevo Calendario Rotativo será implementado a comienzos del año escolar 2017-2018.

Para seleccionar el nuevo calendario principal, se consideraron varias opciones que fueron contrastadas con los siguientes parámetros:

  • Calendario enfocado en el estudiante y el aprendizaje

  • Posibles consideraciones presupuestarias por el cambio en la economía de Wyoming

  • Preparación para la universidad y las carreras profesionales

  • Planificación de maestros y personal, y razones educativas

  • Otras consideraciones, tales como el incremento de la población estudiantil durante las intervenciones en el día escolar (tiempo de revisión entre estudiantes y maestros), almuerzos múltiples, uso compartido del salón de clase, reuniones de los clubes y calendario deportivo o de actividades.

El siguiente es un ejemplo de cómo se verá el nuevo calendario de un típico estudiante de 10.º grado:

Los estudiantes se registran en 7 cursos y asisten a 5 clases por día . Los estudiantes obtienen 7.2 créditos por año.
