Dear Families of Springman Middle School,
At Monday’s Board of Education meeting, principals from both middle schools presented our recommendation to move the middle school schedule to a fixed block model in order to better meet the needs of our students. A fixed block model means that the lengths of classes and the order of classes will be fixed in a specific pattern and will remain the same for the entire school year.
Ultimately, we feel this new model will provide the following for our schools:
1. A sense of order and stability for students
2. Fidelity of implementation of support and services
3. Better utilization of staff members to teach multiple grades without locking certain blocks
4. Maximize use of space in the building
