Jefferson Township High School will be starting the new year with a new Master Schedule. The length of the school day will remain the same with a start time of 7:35 and a dismissal time of 2:15. What changes for the students and teachers is that we will be going from a traditional 8 period day to a 4-day rotating drop block schedule with 6 periods per day. This means that we will be able to lengthen our instructional time in the classroom from 42 minutes based on the traditional 8 period day schedule to 53 minutes of instruction based on the 6-period block schedule. The students will also receive a lunch/academic period in the middle of the day to provide extra academic support where needed. The times of the school day for delayed openings, early dismissals, and advisory will remain the same.
