New Bedford High School Hopes to Drop “Block” Schedule & Lengthen School Day

Robert Pollack,flickr

A committee made up of high school teachers, counselors, administrators and even students has sent a proposal to the New Bedford School Committee to change the unpopular “block” schedule.

Instead, they recommend a seven-period day of 46 minute classes with one extended 70 minute block that would rotate over a seven-day cycle. The committee at the high school also recommends lengthening the school day by 15 minutes.

Dartmouth High School has a block schedule that is similar to New Bedford’s, but has also put together a committee to look into changing that schedule as well.
