EUGENE, Ore. — As 4J students head back to the classroom, high school students in the district will head to class on a new schedule.
This year the four high schools, Churchill, Sheldon, North Eugene and South Eugene will be on a trimester schedule instead of semesters.
The decision to switch was two-fold: to give students who were moving high schools within the district some consistency with their class schedules and a lot of schedules are on trimesters.
“Algebra will be maybe trimester one and maybe trimester two and then a student who has completed that successfully could start geometry their third trimester,” said Laurie Moses, 4J Secondary Education Director.
Moses says each class is 70 minutes long and there are five periods a day. She says it gives students more time to learn at their own pace.
