Keep Block Scheduling within Tyler ISD

150 Signatures Goal: 3,000

This petition was created by concerned students at Robert E. Lee High School. Our school district is attempting to approve an 8-period day as a new schedule for the 2013-2014 school year and so on. TISD high schools adopted a block schedule within the past 16 years, for many good reasons. Scheduling now is the focus of the blame for poor academic performance. We, the students, disagree that scheduling is the cause of the problem, and we wish to uphold a form of the block schedule in the upcoming years. Block scheduling provides many advantages, to name a few, less referrals, more time for teacher-preparedness, and a more manageable schedule for both students and teachers. The 8-period day puts higher achieving students at a disadvantage by giving them less time for in-depth learning and a heavier work load to the already mentally-taxing class work, to name a few. 


Please help our concerns so that we may have a favorable climate for our education and so that we many thrive in our academic ventures.
