My school will be looking at alternate schedules for the 2012-2013 school year to maximize instructional time, allow for time for special learning opportunities for struggling learners, and provide connection time for our interdisciplinary teams. I would appreciate any successful (and, possibly, "out of the box") scheduling decisions your schools have reached. In advance, thanks for your help!
