My school is debating a 4 x 4 schedule. The region is really enforcing the idea, but recent meetings show the region is basing it on pure speculation and present it as some pet project. There are no guarantees in writing and speculation abounds. One or two high schools have adopted it, but none I know of have reached the 4th year mark since I want to see results on seniors. Here is one huge problem: Florida requires 24 credits to graduate high school. If Miami-Dade adopts a 4x4 a student will end up with 32 credits and thus what incentive does the student have in even showing up to a class during their senior year with the exception to required courses such as English IV and Govt/Econ? How does 4X4 work where you are? And does it work for everyone involved (students, teachers)? Pros and cons please.
