Fitting Everything in Requires Creative Scheduling Making time in the school day to emphasize academics, tutor students who need extra help, schedule common planning times for teams, or meet a wide variety of other needs is a challenge all principals face. Our Principal Files principals share how they have made time for these things and more.
Creating a schedule that maximizes instructional time, provides time to meet the needs of the schools students, and makes time for staff to meet and plan is a task that Principal Marguerite McNeely likens to a Rubiks Cube. In order to put together minutes needed to achieve school-wide goals, I just keep turning the schedule said McNeely.
By turning schedule, then turning it some more, McNeely has made time at Hayden R. Lawrence Middle School in Deville, Louisiana, to create special tutoring programs for students who need extra help or enrichment and to achieve many other priorities. From time to time, McNeely has even resorted to setting up alternating-month schedules in order to provide all teams with added planning time.
McNeely squeezes time from some unusual places in order to achieve her purposes. For example, to support the goal of improving math instruction, she includes a brain teaser in each days morning announcements. Correct responses are rewarded with front-of-the-line lunch passes. Instead of blocking time for reading or math instruction, McNeely prefers an approach where all teachers focus on a specific unit or theme and connect their curriculum to that theme.
Another school-wide directive aimed at improving achievement requires language arts teachers to integrate technology into their lessons at least once a week; all other content-area teachers must integrate technology at least twice a grading period.
In addition, the entire school engages in 15 minutes of silent-reading time that is built into the first period of the day. All teachers are expected to structure tests to model standardized tests the students take each year, added McNeely.
Doing that has helped us make major gains. When it comes to planning the flow of the school day at the O. Since the school has a small staff, the PE teacher also teaches academic classes; and all the academic teachers teach electives. We have a unique schedule that I have not seen elsewhere, explained Principal Lee Yeager.
Our small staff and size enables us to schedule all of our core academic classes before lunch. Ask any principal or teacher and they will tell you that it is more difficult to get the attention of middle school students in the afternoon than it is in the morning. So we have all of our electives and PE classes in the afternoons and all of our academic classes in the mornings.
It works very well for us, he added. I start by scheduling those specials for the primary grades in the afternoon, Mink told Education World.
That way, the primary grades have at least 90 minutes of uninterrupted time in the morning for teaching literacy. Whenever possible, Mink tries to schedule specials so two teachers in the same grade level are free at the same time so they can meet to plan. On a quarterly basis, Mink and her assistant principal set aside a half-day block of time so teachers can meet by grade level.
The assistant principal and I plan an activity for the students, she explained.
Outdoor activities and quiz shows are among the most popular activities. The teachers really appreciate the time, said Mink, adding that once a year, we request enough subs so each grade level has a half day to plan together and review data.
Making time for these things in a school of students is quite a challenge. It takes a lot of playing around with time, but I believe the payoff is very valuable and the teachers sure seem to appreciate it. For example, as principal of a Title I school Corcoran has a large number of students who are bussed in early each day for a breakfast program.
The kids often eat their breakfasts in the first 15 minutes, so Corcoran eyed those 30 minutes of free time before the school day officially gets underway as a huge opportunity to gain some instructional time for a population that could benefit from it.
Each day, I take a group of 30 students to our computer lab for 30 minutes, explained Corcoran. In the beginning of the year, Corcoran takes the same 30 kids to the lab each day.
I do that so I can monitor their progress, he explained. As the year winds down, some kids interest or need might wane, so there is always some other kid who wants to join us. There's never an empty seat. Once in awhile -- and the kids never know when -- Corcoran surprises the students with a special challenge and reward.
I make a big deal out of this by delivering the reward to the winners classrooms, he said. The evidence is in the results, he says.

The exemplary middle schools implemented the idea of a smaller schooling unit in the form of "families" or "houses" that differed somewhat from school to school in the way they were organized, in the number and types of classes students took within the smaller units, and in the way students--particularly LEP students--were assigned to those units.
