Common Schedule at High Schools
School board approves 3x5 trimester schedule
April 2012 — By September 2013, all 4J high schools will operate on a common schedule of three trimesters per year and five class periods per day.
The district has been working in recent months to develop a common schedule for all its high schools to support student learning and increase operational efficiency. A work group of teachers, counselors and administrators from all high schools recommended the 3x5 trimester schedule as the best fit with the district’s criteria of depth and rigor, student engagement in learning, scheduling flexibility and sustainability.
Some schools may implement the new schedule next fall, while others will wait until 2013.
