Creating opportunities and
meeting standards
What has taken place so far?

3.
4.
A committee made up of teachers, principals,
parents, students and district staff studied various
schedules last school year (2006-2007)
Information meetings were held at Eagle, Meridian,
Centennial, and Mountain View last spring
A recommendation to keep the A/B block at
Mountain View and Meridian and to continue to
study bell schedule options at Eagle High,
Centennial High, and Rocky Mountain was
approved by the Board of Trustees last spring
The committee has continued meeting this school
year
What has to happen next?


Rocky Mountain High will open fall 2008
The committee must recommend a bell
schedule for the opening of Rocky Mountain.
Why consider alternatives to the
current high school schedules?


Increased graduation requirements limit
opportunities to take electives

from shared programs or students accessing
programs available at other high schools
