The University-Community Working Group was convened by University President Jim Ryan.
Take the survey.
Bell Schedule Survey
Audience: Students, Parents/Guardians, Staff
Deadline to Participate: February 1
As part of our ongoing effort to offer the broadest possible range of learning experiences for students, we are collaborating with one another in reviewing how our various operational practices affect student choice. One such practice is the different bell schedules at each of our schools.
An important part of successfully expanding contemporary learning opportunities for students is ensuring that they are able to participate in such activities both inside and outside of their base school. Uniform bell schedules could make it easier for students from different schools to have equal access to off-campus programs.
However, before we make any decisions, we would like to hear from you via our online survey. Your opinion will be helpful as we consider how we best can work together to meet our School Board's priorities, which include identifying and removing practices that perpetuate the achievement gap and ensuring that students identify and develop personal interests.
Please take a few minutes to complete our survey, which opened today, Tuesday, January 22.
