In response to meet the needs of students, teachers and the school community, the Cheese School District will move to a block scheduling format.  The new schedule will take affect starting the 2002-2003 academic year. 

After conducting extensive research, an inclusive committee composed of board members, teachers, school administration, and student and parent representatives determined that our high school students will benefit from extended class periods.  By utilizing a block schedule, teachers and students will be able to devote more time to learning course content, improve critical thinking skills, and increase overall student performance. 

Here at the Cheese School District we realize there continues to be plenty of debate around the country about the benefits of block scheduling.  In the last few years, substantial evidence of success has been documented from high schools all over the U.S. and Canada.  The committee believes this will be an overwhelming success for our school district as well. 

The links below are provided to explore block scheduling and to further understand all of the issues encompassing this new format.  As always, we welcome your comments and/or questions and hope we can all celebrate this step to improving our community’s schools.
