In the Middle: Middle Schools & Block Scheduling

Madison Gresham

Recently, Barker Middle School transitioned to a new type of scheduling called block scheduling. This is quite a different way to schedule classes when compared to the original 45-minute classes. So what is block scheduling, and what is its purpose?

Block scheduling is where students have 75-minute periods, instead of 45-minute classes. The first important thing to know about this is that students have some classes every other day, and some classes every day.
