Statewide Teacher Action, May 22

Our teachers are going to Sacramento on Wednesday and will be joining thousands of teachers and students from throughout the State. Many of the Tech teachers will be going to Sacramento to advocate for more funding and smaller class size.  The Day of Action is Wednesday the 22 and most of the Staff is going to Sacramento. There will be school but there will be limited instruction; students will be studying for finals so they should bring all the materials that they need. Though the seniors will be in midst of final exams, there will be no exams given if the teacher is not in the classroom.

New Schedule for 2020-21

The teachers voted about the type of schedule we will have, which is as follows:

  • Four days a week there will be a block schedule which means 4 classes per day and 1 day a week will include all 7 periods.
  • Two days per week will be Study Hall for all students.

We did not vote on beginning and end time or other details. We will vote next year on those details and we will have professional development throughout the year about how to implement an effective block schedule.

Summer Almost Here

Despite the rain and strange weather, summer is almost here.  It has been a memorable and unusual year with the smoke out and the very necessary teacher actions.  Thank you for your flexibility and for going above and beyond to make this year happen for the kids and to support our teachers. Please remember that sophomore — senior students will have summer assignments that can be found on the Tech website.

In Unity,

Staci Ross-Morrison, Principal
