Issaquah School Board is set to vote on Liberty High School schedule
December 11, 2012
Students, staff and parents of Liberty High School could know soon whether their daily schedule will change. The Issaquah School Board is expected to vote on the issue at its 7 p.m. Dec. 12 regular meeting.
Since 1995, the school has used an eight-period block schedule where students take four 90-minute classes each day. However, in order to establish a common, districtwide high school schedule, and to give Liberty students more time to study core subjects, district officials are considering changing Liberty’s timetable.
During the Nov. 28 school board meeting, Superintendent Steve Rasmussen recommended switching the school to a six-period schedule, which is what Issaquah and Skyline high schools both use.
It is now up to the board to decide whether to approve Rasmussen’s recommendation or leave things the way they are.
The meeting is in the administrative building at 565 N.W. Holly St. More information, including the superintendent’s and the committee’s recommendations, can be found at www.issaquah.wednet.edu. Under the “What’s Happening” section on the homepage click on “High School Schedule Committee.”
