Scheduling for Flexibility in Small Schools.
Jesser, David L., Ed.,; Stutz, Rowan C., Ed.
In order to provide a wider variety of curriculum offerings and meet the individual needs of students, the Western States Small Schools Project (WSSP) realized it would be necessary to revise or alter drastically the existing organiztional structure of educational programs. Modular scheduling has become the most popular method of meeting this necessity in the WSSP. Advances in computer technology have made this approach possible and aid greatly in the provision of flexibility in scheduling. The participating schools characteristically approached the implementation of this method in three phases: (1) the exploratory phase; (2) the developmental phase; and (3) the operational phase. Descriptions of these phases and the role of the administrator and the consultants necessary for the program are provided. (DK)
