Not a scheduler, either

So we have an early release day Wednesday - for the students, not us. We have meetings and other fine uses of our time set up and ready to annoy. That means that we need a daily schedule for the day after tomorrow. Administration has known about this idea since they negotiated the once-a-month special days last March.

It seemed a good thing to practice with, so my consumer math students spent a class last week putting together the 1hr delay, 2hr delay and early release schedules as well as a more logical normal schedule.

Their efforts weren't good enough because the middle school teachers would lose 30 minutes of prep time. (The high school is on a block schedule and the middle school isn't - always causes major headaches - and the middle school feels put upon.) Instead, we've got Principal PJ's attempt.

His first draft of the schedule came out this morning.

... with one too many periods.

Principal PJs hurriedly redrew the day by putting the last period first, bumping up the rest, changing the lengths of classes in a seemingly random fashion and dumping it all into an email.

Wednesday is going to be fun to watch.

I've gotta get back to work.
