Student Scheduling

Overview

In a 100% distance learning model, students in grades 7-12 will continue to be scheduled into 6 classes as they usually would. 

There are benefits to maintaining the traditional 6-periods: 

  • Fits with SCUSD’s current model and is known and understood
  • Staffing is based on the current model, switching to a block schedule would impact schools ability to staff appropriately to meet the needs of our students
  • Services for students with disabilities  and EL students continue throughout the year, unlike on a straight block schedule
  • Better suited for Advanced Placement (AP) and International Baccalaureate (IB) exams in the spring than a block schedule
  • Easy to switch between in-person, distance and blended model as needed
  • Easy transition for transitory students. Within a block schedule, students who transition to our system mid-semester would be out of sync, and would end up being behind in credits
