When the school year begins at Easton Area High School this month, it will be the first time students are under what's known as "flexible scheduling."
Approved by the school board in February, the schedule switches the typical school day from nine 41-minute periods to five 80-minute periods.
The schedule would include a mix of classes that meet 90 days out of every semester, and those that would meet every other day. School officials have said it will allow students more time to put what they've learned into practice.
But the new scheduling has caused some administrative hiccups at the school. As the Express-Times reported last week, new schedules were supposed to go to students in late May, but didn't go out until the end of July.
That delay was due to the need to move teachers around in the wake of layoffs earlier this summer.
We're asking parents and students: Are you a fan of the new scheduling? Take our poll, and tell us in the comments.
