Block Scheduling seems to be the talk around Stamford Public Schools, and many other school districts over the last couple of years. A block schedule differs from the traditional six or seven period rotating schedule in that there are significantly longer class periods that meet fewer times each day and week. For example, Stamford High and Westhill use a seven-period schedule, and students only have six classes, dropping one each day. The local magnet high school, AITE, has adopted a block schedule. They have 8 classes in total. On A days, they have periods 1-4, and on B days, they have periods 5-8. All four of their periods are 90 minutes long. So, should SPS make the change to the Block Schedule? Two writers at The Round Table proposed their arguments on the topic.
