IAHS principal wants block schedule

By The Itawamba County Times

FULTON – Itawamba Agricultural High School Principal Trae Wiygul has asked the school system’s board to put classes on a block schedule for 2012-13 school year.
The changes, Wiygul said, would allow students to take four 90-minute classes per semester worth eight credits over the year. Currently, students take a maximum of seven 50-minute classes for an entire year, worth a total of seven credits.
According to Wiygul, the current system sometimes results in seniors needing only a few credits to graduate along with a lot of extra time on their hands.
The board will consider the suggestion before committing.
