Interview with Fred Hopkins: “7+H Schedule”

Videos by

In the official AHS Scheduling Committee report from September 18th, 2014, the committee stated that its goals for the new “7 plus H” schedule—which is set to be implemented next year—included “garnering the most current and accurate description or the student and teachers… specific needs” and “designing a schedule that focuses on identified student needs and the development of a positive teaching and learning environment.”

However, many students and staff have come out and voiced the objection that the “identified” needs are far different from the needs they actually have. They believe that the so-called “positive teaching and learning environment” is a false promise, especially for those who will have to test it in its pilot years. Others insist that the push for a new schedule was actually driven by contract and budget issues and had nothing to do with learning.
