Committee sifts through criteria for uniform high school schedule

December 1, 2011

NEW — 2:50 p.m., Dec. 1, 2011

Patrick Murphy, executive director of secondary education for the Issaquah School District, said he believes a volunteer committee will meet a seemingly ambitious Dec. 14 deadline and come up with a uniform schedule to be implemented at all four of the district’s high schools — a goal that could have significant implications to Liberty High School’s class schedules.

Many parents, especially those from Liberty, haven’t been shy about expressing their thoughts regarding the current high school schedules. Liberty operates on a different pattern than the other district high schools and many parents and students alike are defensive of the flexibility they believe that unique schedule allows.

One figure thrown out had Liberty students spending 38 percent of their time in electives. The same figure was given as 27 percent at Issaquah and Skyline high schools. In some minds, added elective time is a big plus to be protected. For others, electives are seen as digging into time for core classes, such as math and language arts.
