10 Years Ago 1997 What will next years [1998] school day look like at the high school? The answer to that question may be as simple as adding two extra periods to the school day, according to a presentation by Arlington High School Principal Warren Hopkins at the last school board meeting. Hopkins said that conservative estimates put the high school population at almost 1,400 students next year, and that is if no one new moves into the district during the summer. This will be an increase of about 200 to a high school that was built to house 1,000 without the portable classrooms on campus. The increase has necessitated a look at some alternatives to the traditional six-period day. Increasing number of students also means a lack of facilities, especially science labs. One of the possible solutions suggested was adding more portables. This idea was strongly denounced by everyone on the school board as not being cost effective. Portables cost a minimum of $51,000 and how do you get rid of them when you dont need them anymore? said school board member Carolyn Erickson. Another option discussed was trying to recruit at least 200 students that would volunteer to begin their day two periods later then the majority of the students. The flip side of that option would be that those students would have to remain at school during a seventh and eighth period. So instead of attending school from periods one through six, as the school day runs now, those stipends would start with period three and go through a period eight. So would some teachers. In an informal survey, 371 out of 941 students surveyed would be interested in a late start. Twenty out of 48 teachers responded they would be interested in a late start to their day. A recent voice poll asked parents about the extended day format. A total of 242 responses were received with 85 (35 percent) saying they would be willing for their child to participate in the late start schedule. Sixty-four (27 percent) said they would be willing to provide transportation for their child. The number of parents willing for their child to participate jumped to 109 (45 percent) when the school district providing some sort of transportation was added to the proposal. Another proposal that Hopkins put forth was long block classes. Already implemented in a number of high schools throughout the state, long blocks consist of four periods lasting 1 1/2 hours each. Science and computer classes would benefit from the longer periods and the high school administration is working on a plan to run long block and traditional length period classes concurrently. The part that Hopkins got excited about was that combining the two schedules would give the students more choice and flexibility in creating their schedule each year. It would also give a student the ability to get one credit finished per semester. A student would also be able to do two years of a foreign language in one year if they so desired.
