Katie Pyzyk reports that there will be no block scheduling in Arlington middle schools next year

ARLnow.com reports that although block scheduling in Arlington middle schools will not begin in 2013, individual schools have the option of exploring their own flexible block schedules. Yesterday I posted the recommendations presented to the school board Tuesday evening.  Katie Pyzky’s report in ARL.now gives a summary of the status of this controversial issue.

Although block scheduling will no longer begin in 2013, it’s not permanently off the table. The board is examining ways to make it work in the future. Of particular interest is finding alternative ways to increase the amount of time spent on core content areas. The length of schools days and start times will also come under review.
