Chattooga High School has made great strides this year in student achievement and motivation. In a continuing effort to further improve student achievement and the graduation rate, Chattooga High School will implement a “hybrid schedule” for the 2009-2010 school year. The hybrid schedule (seen below) helps build the teacher/student relationship, allows students to receive additional help during the school day, and facilitates teacher planning and collaboration.The schedule is a blend of a seven period day and a block schedule. The most innovative feature is the “flex time” on Wednesday mornings. This block of time will serve as a reward and motivation for those students who are achieving academically and behaviorally. We hope this will become an incentive for all students. On the other hand, for those students who need support and additional help, this block of time will be utilized for further instruction, re-teaching, and re-testing.On the first day of school, students will receive a Flex Card .This card, if signed by a parent/guardian and returned to the first period teacher, will allow students who are academically and behaviorally on-track to start school at 9:25 on Wednesdays. Without this signed permission card, a student will be expected to be at school at the regular 7:45 start time. At any time, if a teacher deems that a student needs additional help, that student will be notified to report to school on Wednesdays at 7:45 until their achievement level is where it should be. All students who must ride the bus to school or those students whose parent/guardian does not sign the flex card will report to the lunchroom on Wednesdays at 7:45 A.M. for supervised study time.Any parent who has questions may contact Beth Morgan, Assistant Principal, at (706)857-2402.
