Dickinson School Board approves A/B schedule, skinny classes

By  | 

DICKINSON, N.D. - The Dickinson School Board has approved the use of A/B scheduling in the high schools.

Student would take eight classes a semester but split them up into two days. Students take four classes one day and take the other four the next day.

Assistant Superintendent Keith Harris said, "We're also very confident that as we, we provide better opportunities for collaboration. Our students will see the benefits of that."

The board also approved skinny classes. Instead of a class meeting for 90 minutes, A/B schedule gives students the opportunity to meet for the classes every day for shorter periods of time.

The district will implement this new update in the 2021 school year.
