So, our school is currently on a rotating A/B block (with 4 85 minute classes per day) but our board has mandated that we transition away from such a schedule for the next academic year. I serve on the committee that is researching alternatives, and while I've spent lots of time browsing school websites and ERIC, I wanted more input. We are seriously looking at some sort of modified block format, where some days of the week the kids have all 8 classes, and some days they go to longer periods of fewer classes. Does anyone have any example bell schedules like this, that they'd be willing to share? Or even just general ideas on this? Has anyone gone through such a transition?
