Scheduling for Instruction
The Cherokee County Board of Education will adhere to and promulgate guidelines relative to State Board of Education Rules for Scheduling for Instruction, School Day and School Year for Students and Employees and Middle School Program Criteria, which best fit the needs of its students while utilizing available resources.
Additionally, the School District recognizes the potential need to reorganize the traditional class day in order to meet new challenges presented to students in the twenty-first century and to support school improvement efforts aimed at increasing student performance. All alternative scheduling waiver requests will be submitted on an annual basis as part of the State’s Strategic Waiver School System contractual guidelines during the School Improvement Process. Waivers will be reviewed by a committee of district-level personnel and submitted to the Superintendent or designee for approval.
Waiver requests that include a request for a schedule and/or instructional setting change that deviates from the traditional period day, may include a request for block or modified block scheduling, class size flexibility or co-teaching alternatives.
