Abolish The New Schedule at Palmer High
Petition Background (Preamble):
Question: What is wrong with the present schedule?
Answer: The present schedule doesn't allow time for teachers to collaborate or to work individually with struggling students.
False. The present schedule gives most teachers two free periods plus a lunch period in which they can work with other teachers and struggling students.
Problems with Current Schedule:
Â• No time for teachers to collaborate
Â• No time for teachers to work with struggling students
o False, all teachers have free periods in which they can work with other teachers or with students.
Problems with the Proposed Schedule:
Â• No time allotted for Terror TV or announcements,
Â• On a block day, it is possible for a student to began,
class at 7:40 and not eat for five hours.
Â• Field Trips are discouraged
Â• Students taking classes at other schools or at a local
college will have trouble creating a schedule
Â• Students who are taking 8 classes per day will lose a
class, because only 7 periods are offered.
o Particularly detrimental to IB students who wish to participate in elective or extra classes.
Proposed alternate changes to Schedule:
Â• Retain present schedule.
Â• Create department wide lunches/planning periods, so that all members of any given department share a free period in which they can collaborate.
