Spring 2018

In spring 2018, we asked families, community members, and staff to share their ideas for what we should be thinking about as we make the switch to a new high school schedule. 

Your feedback is helping us plan a smooth transition to a trimester system, starting in fall 2020. Check out the top-rated comments shared in our spring Thoughtexchange, and read Superintendent Enfield's reflections on the top 10 comments. 

The trimester schedule with five periods a day allows students to earn more credits each year and experience a broader choice of electives. 

Many school districts are making schedule changes in response to the state's new, more demanding graduation requirements. 

During the online conversation, we received 360 thoughts from nearly 480 people.

Five themes emerged from the online conversation:

  • Learning time
  • Instruction and lesson planning
  • Planning and communication 
  • Student support
  • Staff workload and support 

Your ideas will help us plan and develop a transition plan for the trimester schedule.

Visit our online interactive report in English and Spanish to learn about the top priorities that emerged.

We thank you for contributing your thoughts and ideas. Your participation in the process was invaluable.
