An update on Region 1 schedule changes:
Region One parents and teachers are upset at what appears to be a change of heart on Assistant Superintendent Pam Vogel after the last parents meeting.
Looking back at that last parents meeting videotape, Pam Vogel talks about how the parent and teacher committee will be “that group” to create a schedule. That the schedule will be similar to the current schedule….. how they will have input into the schedule and roll it out a little at a time. But in the notice just posted for the next Region One BOE meeting, the agenda included:
Discussions on Scheduling-Grading
Practices, & Mastery Based Learning
We at Robin Hood Radio have been informed from in-school sources that at yesterday’s faculty meeting, the following was made official: Beginning next fall, there will be four 80 minute blocks a day alternating every other day (A/B). Tonight Pam Vogel has a meeting with a group of eight parents from 6-8pm at the high school. Parents and teachers reached outlate yesterday with their he main source of concern being that quite simply that Vogel closed out thelast public meeting by saying that there would not be a block schedule next year and that any schedule change would be based on input from teachers and parents. To those teachers and parents that appears not to be the case.
