Trimester Schedule Q&A
- What support will teachers receive for preparing for this change?
- What process was used to make this decision?
- Will middle schools also change to the trimester schedule?
- Will band and choral students be able to participate in their music classes year around?
- A course that is currently a year-long class will be completed in 2 trimesters. A student may not have any instruction in that subject for a trimester or longer. How will that gap impact learning?
- How will having the opportunity to take more courses prepare students for college and career?
- What do we know about other districts using the trimester system?
- How will we address the time gaps between courses in core subjects?
- How will course content be covered in fewer weeks per term?
