I am the chairperson of a committee that is currently researching Block
Scheduling for our school. If the faculty accepts a proposal this year,
we would be looking at a 1996/1997 implementation. I would appreaciate
hearing from anyone who is opperating with a Block schedule or is looking
a Block scheduling.

If anyone is looking at Block Scheduling and has not yet contacted Wasson
HS ( Colorada Springs, I would highly recoomend you do.
They have been using a straight 4 block, similar to the one Grace
describes, for three years and have collect a great deal of data.
