Dr. Scribner refuses to put the 8-period day to a vote

by Ann Sutherland on 02/17/19

The draft agenda for Feb. 25th does not include a vote on the 8-period day.  Also the district has refused to provide a copy of the organization chart or the grade-equivalents as I requested.

Dr. Sutherland, is there a way for you to find out if districts that have 435 minutes have a 7 or 8 period day please AND how many INSTRUCTIONAL days are on their calendar. I work for Mansfield. We have 7 1/2 (450 min) hour days but are on a block schedule. BUT we have MORE instructional days than what is proposed for fwisd. I worry that my kids are losing valuable INSTRUCTIONAL days!! Can we compare apples to apples. Districts with either 435 or 450 minutes, number of periods AND number of instructional days. Would be very helpful!
