Block review: Preston School Board evaluates class times

The Preston School Board began a work session last Friday, concerning the trimester system, with Superintendent Joel Wilson and Jeff Lords, the high school principal, and 13 patrons in the audience.

 

The goal was to develop a student centered schedule by evaluating the current block system and evaluate if it met the needs of the students at the high school.

Students at Preston High School hang out in the hall before school Tuesday morning. District trustees visited the block system in a recent work session and decided not to change things for now.

“The meeting was open to the public, but we didn’t invite special interest groups or people. The ones that came, came on their own,” Wilson said. The group sought feedback from patrons with families affected by the schedule. They got together to keep their word to the community that the schedule would be reviewed after it was implemented.

    This meeting was advertised as closed to the public, specifically the faculty. While the faculty were told to not come, patrons were allowed in and allowed to participate. A small group of parents with “special interests” were allowed to influence the decision, and ultimately sway the school boards opinion. If we don’t speak up this small minority will out voice what is best for the students and our community.
