For the 2018 – 2019 school year, Montpelier High School will be changing how school is delivered. Here is our flex mod plan:
Three of the main reasons we are moving to this are this:
- It will provide time for students that need extra help to get it.
- It will provide time for those advanced students to take advanced courses and get help with them.
- It will provide what seems to me a more logical way of doing school.
In PowerSchool, students and parents do now have access to student schedules. It can be accessed by logging into PowerSchool and then clicking ‘My Schedule’. At the top you can select ‘Week View’ and ‘Matrix View’. The week view, now, only gives a picture of two days of the week – Tuesday and Wednesday. This is because the first ‘official’ days of school are August 14th and 15th, but students do not come to school until August 20th. The ‘Matrix View’ gives a more complete picture of student schedules.
When looking at the matrix view, it may help to realize that each day is broken up into 20 mods. Mod #1 is ten minutes long and at the end of the day and mods #2 – #20 are twenty minutes long. Each day of the week in the matrix view is represented by a letter – A is Monday, B is Tuesday, C is Wednesday, D is Thursday, and E is Friday.
Students that are new to Montpelier School will not have a schedule available until 8/14.
