School Board Speak Out on Class Schedule Change


More than 50 parents and students showed up at Tuesday night's Bend La Pine School Board meeting to tell members they have concerns about changing the high school schedule. The District is looking at going to a seven period day, that will allow them to shorten class times, but not increase class sizes. School Board member Nori Juba sees the pros and cons: “As a Board member, there are good arguments for it. Research shows 7 period scheduled lead to better academic results. Anytime you can use assets better it's good. But I'm a parent. I have a junior at Summit and he's had three changes in the last four years, and I have an issue with constantly changing the game for our students.” Superintendent Ron Wilkinson will ultimately make the final decision on whether to switch to a 7 period schedule. He's expected to decide in the next couple weeks.
