Abstract

The aim of this study was to examine the various experiences of the administrators, teachers, and students with regard to the block scheduling experience at their school. In an effort to address anonymity and confidentiality the schools studied will be referred to as Cedar High and Woods High. At the heart of the matter was the question of whether or not the block scheduling experience was a positive one. The study was qualitative in design and used the open-ended interview technique. In total there were 15 participants interviewed. – The participants interviewed in this study generally agreed that their experience with block scheduling as it existed at their school was a positive one. Post-secondary preparation, early graduation, and increased course options were given as contributing to the positive nature of their experiences.
