The 2012-2013 Bell Schedule for Heights High

August 23, 2012
Cleveland Heights, OH

The high school school will adopt a new bell schedule for the 2012-2013 school year.

- Periods in the middle of the day, 3-9, will be 23 minutes long. Periods 1, 2 and 10,11 will be 50 minutes long. Second period will include an extra four minutes for morning announcements.

- Teacher collaboration will take place from 2:55-3:45 on Tuesdays.

- Students will eat lunch during periods 3 – 9.

- Students in need of a guided study period will have a 23 minute Educational Options for Success (EOS) period.

- Some classes, especially science labs, might include a longer 50 minute period (1&2 and 10&11) and a shorter mid-day period of 23 minutes.

- Teachers will hold afterschool office hours every day (except on Tuesdays), for a 20 minute period, from 3:10-3:30 p.m., to offer additional academic support for students.

Teacher's Union President Ari Klein first proposed a modular schedule two years ago. “We believe this schedule will help us maintain an orderly instructional environment and provide more time for teacher collaboration,” Klein stated.

An important aspect of the proposed schedule is additional time after school for students to meet with teachers for additional academic support.

All extracurricular activities will start after 4 p.m
