HOWARD — Scheduling was one of the topics discussed when the East Knox Board of Education met in regular session on Wednesday.
“Scheduling is a full go at the high school for next year,” said Superintendent John Marschhausen. “At the middle school, we are waiting to see levy results before we finalize student schedules. If the levy passes, we will have a similar schedule to this school year. If the levy is unsuccessful, we will be reducing to a seven-period day with a full class study for each grade.”
He said the study halls would be held in the cafeteria, with, for example, all of the seventh-graders at once.
Marschhausen said on Wednesday that study hall time would then be used by the respective grade-level teachers as a planning period; the state mandates at least one planning period per school day. Planning periods currently occur when the students are in specials classes, such as music or physical education.
