The debate continues regarding high school schedule changes, although Bend La Pine Schools Superintendent Ron Wilkinson says a seven period schedule is the only way he sees things working out. Wilkinson believes there really is no perfect schedule that would make everyone happy. But they've had to rearrange the structure to make it fit with the new budget. Still, he understands why students and teachers alike have concerns: “And so they're concerned with having seven classes in a day versus four more classes to prepare for potentially more homework.  Obviously, we have to coordinate with staff to make sure that doesn't happen but that's a concern they have. And from a teacher's stand point, they’re used to having one of those four blocks for a planning period a day and will now have a much shorter planning period with just one out of seven." Despite those concerns, Wilkinson says right now this is the only way to keep the same class sizes while making the staff reductions required by the new budget.
