Flexible Scheduling: Making the Transition
Creighton, Peggy Milam
School Library Media Activities Monthly, v24 n5 p24-27 Jan 2008
Citing literature that supports the benefits of flexible scheduling on student achievement, the author exhorts readers to campaign for flexible scheduling in their library media centers. She suggests tips drawn from the work of Graziano (2002), McGregor (2006) and Stripling (1997) for making a smooth transition from fixed to flexible scheduling: (1) Enlist the support of the principal; (2) Involve members of the school staff in creating a shared vision; (3) Demonstrate that flexible scheduling will meet a specific need; (4) Develop a planning team; (5) Study models that have worked well; and (6) Develop collaborative personality traits.
