High schools offer new optional seventh-period

January 7, 2014

By Staff

For the first time, high-school students at Issaquah and Skyline high schools will have the ability to sign up for a seventh-period course.

The courses will be available for the start of the second semester on Jan. 27. The district intends the classes to be additional learning opportunities for students. They are optional, extend beyond the regular school day and do not increase graduation requirements.

Skyline students will have 12 options available for seventh period, including subjects like algebra, courtroom law, film analysis, food science, robotics and theater production.

Students at Issaquah will have seven options to choose from, including 1960’s history, robotics, rocketry and Spanish.

Register for classes at Skyline at www.shs.issaquah.wednet.edu. For classes at Issaquah, go to www.ihs.issaquah.wednet.edu.

The registration deadline for both schools is 11:59 p.m. Jan. 15. The number of students who select a particular course, instructor and facility will ultimately determine which courses are offered during seventh period.

    i don’t think the seventh period should not be introduced even though it will help people out a lot it would over do the pupils to the maximum it will make them more restless as well we do are best just with six periods we can not cope under a lot of pressure
