DHS Faculty Votes To Explore New Scheduling Options For 2017-2018 School Year

As we begin to plan ahead for the 2017-18 school year, the faculty of Dillard High School 6-12 has voted to explore other school schedule options for next year.  Most of the district high schools changed this year to a 4X4 A/B schedule.  On the 4X4 A/B schedule, students take four 90-minute classes a day. The classes meet every other day for a total of eight periods. This would be one of the options considered. The changes being considered would be to support teaching and learning.  If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call the school at 743-322-0800.  Ask to speak to  your student's school counselor.
