Our classes are 44 minutes each. We used to be on an 80 minute block but
after 4 years of suffering, we convinced the admin that math needs to be
every day.

Sent by:

I would like to do a brief survey - if you could reply to this message
letting me know how long are your individual classes. My school is the
midst of decreasing our classes to 39 minutes in the next couple of weeks.
I remember our classes in the past being as long as 45 minutes, but as the
years pass each administration is putting something more into our
schedules decreasing instructional time ( for instance my school has a 40
minute lunch - 20 minutes to eat and then 20 minutes free time in the
gym). With common core module lessons being a stated 45 minutes in length
- how are schools with less time handling not being able to cover all
topics? Thank you for your input.
