Is Your School Overcrowded?
Lockenmeyer, Fred E.
This school scheduling plan provides for use of the school building for six days a week and divides students and teachers into three equal groups that attend school only four days out of every six. A rotation program, which would allow the schedule to change each week, or a fixed schedule could be used. The normal school day would be from 7:45 a.m. to approximately 3:30 p.m. The plan places an emphasis on increased use of facilities with little or no disruption in normal functions. Some other advantages would be less need for students to be programed into a "lock-step" type of scheduling; the availability of a wide area of subject elections to all students; and the availability of more time for on-the-job training, vocational inservice programs, and community service projects. A school that utilizes this program would be able to handle one-third more students than its rated normal capacity without increasing the school budget. (Author/MLF)
