As the new school year is steady on the horizon, some changes to our school are making their way into school schedules. With the elimination of SOAR classes, some adjustments to the surrounding classes are on their way as well.

“Classes from Tuesday through Friday will be 60 minutes long, instead of 54 minutes,” assistant principal Brett Surguine said. ” The start of the school day will be the same, the end of the school day will be the same and we will not have a SOAR.”

Monday, however is exempt from these changes due to the faculty professional development day and early release schedule.

With these changes, Yuma high staff hopes to maximize core and elective class time by 14 hours more per class each year. During these added minutes, teachers can use this time to do a multitude of different educational practices with students ranging from reflections and assessments.

“It was a long process that involved input from teachers and from the leadership on campus,” Surguine said. “Trying to look at how we can best use the minutes and the resources that we have.”
