Bell Schedule Revision Committee to discuss potential changes

Rebecca Yao

Paly’s Bell Schedule Revision Committee will meet to discuss making adjustments to the 2017-2018 school year’s bell schedule with hopes of  presenting a recommendation to Education Council on March 22, 2017.

“In the last few years there has been a lot of discussion over the benefit, or lack thereof, of “C” days,” said Victoria Kim, the assistant principal of student services.

Students and other members of the Paly community were given the opportunity to apply to be a part of a committee that will research possible alternative bell schedules.

“The purpose of forming a committee is to thoroughly investigate and do research to come up with a recommendation for a bell schedule that would be best for students,” Kim said.

Although ‘C’ days are a big part of comittee discussion, Kim says the committee is not just about ‘C’ day schedules.

The committee will incorporate input from students, teachers and parents through a variety of surveys and groups.

Meetings will be held in the English Writing Center every Tuesday from 3:05 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.
