Previously I was set up with a 40 minute, 14 day schedule. This year it is 30 minutes. I believe it is better because no student in Grades 2-6 really needs to be doing anything for 80 minutes in a row, which is what was happening. Now, as they have double periods, the most they do is 60, and Grades K and 1 have 30 minute periods. Should work for the best.
