The proposed 2020-2021 schedule for CVUHS disadvantages students academically. Having Red classes in the fall and White classes in the spring makes it nearly impossible for students to succeed at AP classes. Squashing so much learning into one semester will place an undue burden on students trying to learn difficult content. The proposed schedule will force students to either cram all their APs into the spring or wait 4-5 months after completing a course to take the national exam. Either way, the potential for students to earn college credit will be hindered. Our ability to gain acceptance into college, which depends at least partially on AP classes, will be damaged by this proposed schedule.
Instead, a schedule that resembles the Red week/White week model should be used. Yearlong courses should take a year. Semester courses should take a semester. By replicating our familiar (and effective) schedule from years past while still accommodating social distancing, all students will be able to succeed at CVU.
