INFORMATIONAL

TO: Division Superintendents
FROM: William C. Bosher, Jr.
Superintendent of Public Instruction
SUBJECT: Block Scheduling Survey

 
Because of the numerous requests that we receive for information
relative to block scheduling, we are seeking input from secondary
schools throughout the Commonwealth.  Each secondary principal
will receive surveys to be completed and returned to the
Department of Education.  The purpose for collecting this data is
to develop a data bank that will be used to share information
with schools who are now using or are considering a non-traditional
approach to the use of daily allocated instructional
time.

As always, thank you for your assistance and all that you do for
the children of the Commonwealth.  If you need additional
information, please contact Tom Shortt at (804) 225-2874.
