Block scheduling agrees with staff, students


The results are in. And halfway through Red Wing High School's first year using block scheduling, the new format seems to be working for both staff and students.

Matt Schultz, Red Wing High School's activities director, helped conduct a survey to gather students' and educators' thoughts on the new system.

Overall, the results are positive. Under block scheduling, students attend four 80-minute classes a day. Not every class therefore meets daily.
