Windermere Dynamic Scheduling Model

WINDERMERE DYNAMIC SCHEDULING MODEL - 2021 - 2022

WHAT IS THE WDS MODEL?
10 period school day
Students choose any 7 periods, which do not have to be contiguous
Classes from 7:20 AM to 5:08 PM (3:28 PM Wed)
Teachers work a 7 1/2 hour workday w/4 start times
Wednesday early day remains intact
1-year commitment to WDS Model

WHY DO WE NEED AN INNOVATIVE MODEL?
A schedule is a reflection of the school's values and
priorities. Research shows improvements in sleep for
students resulting in reduced depression symptoms.
Research also shows increased academic outcomes
including grades and performance on state assessments,
increased attendance rates, and reduced tardiness.

NEXT STEPS
Collect teacher feedback
Collect student feedback
Collect Coaches', Directors', Sponsors' feedback
Collect teacher schedule preferences
Collect student schedule preferences
Build master schedule and schedule students

WHAT SETS THE WDS MODELAPART?
Scheduling flexibility for students and teachers
Availability of later start times
Availability of a "standard" option

TARGETED STUDENTS
Students with available transportation
Students who require an innovative schedule for
athletic training, work, sibling care, child care, etc.
Students who would like a later start time
