8) Discussion on Possible Conversion to Trimester at Secondary Level.
-- The board listened to a presentation by CHS Principal Cory Slagle on the plans and rational for a switch to trimesters and will decide at the March board meeting if they will approve the plan. Letters have been sent to parents and students and a meeting was attended by 25-30 parents. Reaction from students, teachers and parents has been positive. The new CHS trimesters would be implemented to help meet state requirements for a college prep path (to match the OLAP path) and a standard path. Instead of the current 6 classes per day and two semesters per school year, the new system would have 5 longer classes per day with three credit separations per year in the same number of days (Aug-Nov, Nov-Feb, and Feb-May). Similar trimester systems are currently in use by Oologah, Bixby, Tahlequah, Catoosa, Sperry, Catoosa and Miami. Slagle indicated the system would provide greater flexibility for students needing remedial help as well as students looking for greater challenges.
