Saucon Valley School Board member Bryan Eichfeld said at Tuesday's meeting that he would like the board to re-evaluate its use of "block scheduling" in the future.
"Block scheduling is a type of academic scheduling in which each student has fewer classes per day" and is common in middle and high schools, according to a Wikipedia.org entry for the subject.
One of the criticisms of block scheduling, according to the article, is that "students who miss a block-scheduled day can miss a considerable amount of material in a single subject, possibly making it more difficult to catch up."
Eichfeld said he thinks block scheduling is causing problems, and that moving away from it "would open up more opportunities for our students."
"(Block scheduling is) one of the curriculum things that I would really like to take a
look at," he added.
The school board's next meeting will be held Tuesday at 7 p.m. in the high school Audion room.
