LCSD #1 weighs possible schedule change
“There are those that don’t like the idea for legitimate reasons. We know we’re going to have to create some solutions for example for kids that are in orchestra or band.”
CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - The debate over the restart for students is heating up in Laramie County this evening. Students, teachers, and parents await the verdict on how the school year will play out.
Students, teachers, and parents await the verdict on how the school year will play out. There is a bevy of issues on the table and variables to consider for in-person learning.
“There were two leading factors that guided the principles to suggest this proposal, and first high schools are trying to create plans that minimize the number of cohorts that interact with each other.”
“It makes it harder for Fall coverage for sports for events, and kids will have to come in on their own time early in the morning or late at night to finish up pages.”
The current proposal will have kids taking their core classes in the fall semester and their electives in the Spring. When you think about the pros and cons, both arguments have validity.
“There are those that don’t like the idea for legitimate reasons. We know we’re going to have to create some solutions, for example, for kids that are in Orchestra or band.”
One parent has a child in the Orchestra, presently. She believes the long list of after-school activities like choir, band that are all year long, don’t fit the students’ favor.
“We’ll have to choose between her electives because all but one of her electives is a year-long, shes in Orchestra. Those are all classes that compete and do performances throughout the school year, so she can’t be in a semester-long class.”
