Washington Preparatory High School Against Block Scheduling sign now

The block scheduling has not even been executed yet and we are already discovering the problems with this scheduling.

Block scheduling is restricting classes to a certain semester and these classes are not offered each semester. This causes a great problem for people in classes or programs such as band or JROTC who cannot stay after school to have their programs executed. JROTC and band need the full year to train and teach their students.

Second: an extra 30 minutes added to each class cannot substitute for a whole extra semester. Many classes such as those in the Advance Placement program are being jeopardized. These students have their exams in May, and need to study all year for it. By only offering the classes for half of the year, you either result in covering everything at lightning speed and not elaborating- which results in a 2 or lower on the exams- or you run out of time for teaching the classes and the students are left at a loss when it comes to their exams- resulting in a two or lower.

We are attempting to raise our grades. By making classes faster, having them only a semester, leads to a rushing of subjects which should be spread throughout the school year. Students that learn at a slower pace are left behind those students that manage to keep up and do not get the full effect of the class.

This block scheduling is making it so we leave the school at 3 oclock. Many of the students at WPHS have jobs to support themselves and their parents. This is highly inconveniencing for these working students who end up arriving late to work or other programs they have such as after school programs and other extra curricular activities. Also, some people ride buses home and have to leave at a certain time. Some parents need to pick their children up at a certain time. By extending the class time youre damaging many peoples transportation.

This petition is our statement that we do not want this scheduling at our school.
