Flexible Scheduling to Fit the Firefighters.
Cox, Clarice Robinson
Three flexible scheduling plans were tried in order that firefighters could take regular college courses despite their 24 hours on the 24 off work schedule. Plan one scheduled the firefighters into a regular Monday-Wednesday-Friday class which they attended every other week, making up missed material outside of class. Plan two scheduled special 2-hour classes on every other Monday, Wednesday and Friday; and plan three scheduled firefighters into one Monday-Wednesday-Friday and one Tuesday-Thursday section of the same class on alternate weeks. Plan three drew the most favorable response from both students and teachers, as it provided a chance for the firefighters to take classes with regular students. If the number of firefighters desiring to take a particular class was sufficiently large and the class materials were adaptable, plan two was also regarded as useful. (MC)
