Dear Amador Valley Students and Families,


Amador Valley High School has been given official approval by the PUSD School Board to pilot an alternative bell schedule for the 2017-2018 school-year.


The new bell schedule is as follows:


Monday, Tuesday, Friday

7:00 - 7:55

8:00 -  8:59

9:05 - 10:04

Brunch

10:04 - 10:13

10:19 - 11:18

11:24 - 12:27

Lunch

1:07 - 2:06

Wednesday

Collaboration

8:00 - 8:45

8:50 - 10:20

ACCESS

10:26 - 11:06

Brunch

11:06 - 11:15

11:21 - 12:51

Lunch

12:51 - 1:25

1:31 - 3:01


Thursday

7:00 - 8:45

8:50 - 10:20

ACCESS

10:26 - 11:06

Brunch

11:06 - 11:15

11:21 - 12:51

Lunch

12:51 - 1:25

1:31 - 3:01

Monday, Tuesday, and Friday are traditional 6 period days.  Wednesday and Thursday are “block” days which include an ACCESS period.  Linked is a copy of the PRESENTATION shared with the PUSD School Board.


The Access period, offered on Wednesday and Thursday, is designed to provide an opportunity for each student to be able to access needed support.  Options would include connecting with teachers, obtaining support from counselors/other wellness choices, or pursuing other academic needs. Some students may be required to attend an intervention session that addresses their individual needs.


The Amador Valley High School staff is dedicated to ensuring all students receive a high quality education in order to be college and career ready upon graduation.  We believe the implementation of this alternative bell schedule will assist in providing the needed supports for our students.  


Amador Valley Administration will be holding opportunities to discuss this change throughout the spring semester.  


Below are some of the set dates:

March 28, 2017 - AVHS Student Forum (Lunch)

April 18, 2017 - AVHS Student Forum (Lunch)

May 18, 2017 - Principal’s Coffee (Incoming 9th Grade)

TBD - Principal’s Coffee (All Amador Families)


We continue to appreciate your support.


Sincerely,


Michael Williams

Principal
