School Schedule

Equity Lab is proposing to operate within a yearly schedule of 185 days (36 weeks) and a mandatory daily schedule of 8:30 am to 5:00 pm, Monday through Friday. The total hours would be 8.5 hours per day, 42.5 hours per week, and 1,572.5 hours per year. The year would be divided into two 18 week semesters (or four 9 week quarters). The school day would be organized into seven blocks, 60 minutes per block. These blocks would include academic subjects linked to a project:  Math Integration, English Language Arts Integration, Social Studies Integration, and Science Integration. They would also include co-academic subjects linked to a project:  Arts Integration and Movement Integration. Accelerated Learning Labs (ALL) is a daily academic intervention where students would receive targeted instruction in Math and ELA (up to 5 hours per week), Special Education students would receive visual, auditory, speech and language, and occupational support and ELL students would receive direct English instruction. The daily schedule would include a 30-minute morning circle (advisory) at the beginning of the day and a 60-minute community lunch. Students at the high school level would participate in a full day internship and/or college class once a week:  9th and 10th graders on Tuesdays and 11th and 12th graders on Thursdays.

The following illustrates the proposed schedules for middle and high school students.
