Block Schedules

Block scheduling is a major component of the alternative program. All high school students attend a single class for four class periods daily in a four-week period. At the end of this four-week session, students earn a half credit. Then, the students rotate to another class for the next four-week period.

This type of scheduling encourages teaching creativity, provides greater flexibility, allows greater opportunity for individualization of assignments, and fosters the creation of a more supportive classroom atmosphere for students.

Note About Block Schedules

Due to the complexity of scheduling students into block classes and the need to conduct periodic graduation and progress checks with all students, a scheduling day is set once a semester. On these days, classes are suspended, and each student is assigned a time to appear. Teachers go over the student's final grade in his previous classes, discuss attendance, any other items needed to address and introduce the student to his next teacher. Students may be required to remain at school to do make-up assignments or for counseling or guidance.

If possible, students should arrange private transportation on this day so that they don't have to remain in the building until the buses run. Students who attend regular education classes or Tulsa Technology classes or night school classes must attend these classes as usual on scheduling/testing days. Students who fail to appear for scheduling day activities will be counted absent for the day. An unexcused absence on scheduling day is considered to be a significant violation of the Student Contract. Scheduling days may be abbreviated or eliminated if necessary to provide a minimum number of instructional days in an upcoming block of instruction.
