In Claremont, it’s certainly been a busy year for Stevens High School and school district administrators as they debate with the state over the class schedule. Following the state’s Public Employee Labor Relations Board ruling that Stevens stop implementing their new A/B classroom schedule and revert to their former block schedule, the school board met Wednesday night to discuss moving forward.
Following a heated debate, according to both The Eagle Times and The Valley News, the board decided to table the discussion for a special meeting as board members clashed on defying the state’s ruling. This meeting, with the date and time to be announced, will include the public, teachers, and board members.
The A/B schedule was adopted last year to allow students to a higher success rate in their core classes by offering four classes on A days and four other classes on B days throughout the year. The block schedule simply required that students take four classes per semester.
With the school year picking up again shortly, students will use the block schedule as school administrators and the public work out how to proceed.
