Prisoners of Time: Implementing a Block Schedule in the High School.
Mistretta, Gerald M.; Polansky, Harvey B.
NASSP Bulletin, v81 n593 p23-31 Dec 1997
A committee comprised of six veteran teachers, the principal, and one parent initiated East Lyme (Connecticut) High School's search for a workable school schedule. The alternative-day block schedule featured semester and full-year course formats, 85-minute time blocks, a 45-minute lunch/club/activity period, and a closed campus. A survey found that absence and makeup work were top implementation concerns. (11 references) (MLH)
