PHS Wall to Wall FAQ's
Wall to Wall FAQ's

1. Will the grading system remain the same?Yes the grading system will be the same.

2. How will the block schedule work? We will be doing an A/B block and an eight period day.á For example if we have a full week we will have 4 days of block and one day of 8 period day.á If we have a four day week we will have 4 block day.á If it is a three day week we will have 2 block and 1 eight period day.á Trying to keep the week balanced out so we always start a week with the same schedule.

3. If my student changes after a year what changes besides advisory group/teachers? Nothing really. á

4. Will information be sent home? I have read all the links/documents.á I will keep posting things online and as we get closer to the start of the school year I am planning on putting together an information flyer an will put an FAQ section on the website.

5. Will the advisory group work like now? Who will a parent contact be?á The advisory will be very similar to what we have now.á The major difference will be that each advisory will have a business mentor come meet with them once a month.
