Bell schedules will change for 2018-19

Posted on: April 24, 2018

This week, the School Board heard a report from Assistant Superintendent Tonja Everest about bell schedule changes for next school year. After a one-year pilot to adjust school start times based on research about adolescent sleep needs, the schedules will revert back. The changes will make the schedules similar to bell schedules for the 2016-17 school year.

The details for the schedules at each school are not available yet. They will be presented at an upcoming School Board meeting. Busing schedule needs will influence any final adjustments.

One of the goals of the pilot bell schedule change was to ensure that all students had the same instructional time. Proposed changes will help ensure that all students have the same amount of learning time.

“One of the things we gained from this pilot is standardization of school times among elementary schools,” said Everest. “There used to be a 30-minute variance among some schools.”

The School Board is expected to vote on the proposed schedule for 2018-19 at its May meeting.

Los horarios de los timbres de inicio cambiaran para el periodo escolar 2018-19

Esta semana, la Mesa Directiva escucho un reporte de la Superintendente Interina, Sra.
Tonja Everest, sobre los cambios de los horarios de clases para el próximo año. Después
de un plan piloto de un año, para ajustar los horarios de inicio de clases basados en la
investigación sobre las necesidades de sueño de los adolescentes, los horarios se
revertirán. Los cambios harán que los horarios sean similares a los horarios de timbres de
ingreso del año escolar 2016-17.

Los detalles de los horarios en cada escuela aún no están disponibles. Se presentarán en
una próxima reunión de la Mesa Directiva. Las necesidades del horario de transporte
influirán en cualquier ajuste final.

Uno de los objetivos del cambio de horario piloto, fue asegurar que todos los estudiantes
tuvieran el mismo tiempo de instrucción. Los cambios propuestos ayudarán a asegurar que todos los estudiantes tengan la misma cantidad de tiempo de aprendizaje.

“Una de las cosas que obtuvimos de este plan piloto, es la estandarización de los tiempos
escolares en las escuelas primarias”, dijo Everest. “Solía haber una variación de 30
minutos entre algunas escuelas”.

Se espera que la Mesa Directiva vote sobre el calendario propuesto para 2018-19 en su reunión del mes de mayo.

Sunrise Elementary students get lessons in design, 3D printing

Posted on: April 14, 2018

Sunrise fifth-grade students got the chance to learn new technology skills that combined design, new software skills and 3D printing.

The lesson was a collaboration between Sunrise fifth-grade teacher Jessica Boland and West Albany High School teacher Matt Boase, who is working on his administrative license.

Boase brought a 3D printer from WAHS, found an online contest that presented a design challenge for ocean cleanup, and helped guide the students through the process from research to design to printing.
