Hillsborough County School Board contemplated several different scheduling options for the original goal of giving teachers more time to plan out their classes.
They eventually came upon a consistent way to do this. Every Monday of the 2011-12 school year, the students of Hillsborough County are released an hour early.
“There is no effect on me because we are only getting out an hour earlier,” said sophomore Nakisa Ghannad.
The reason students feel this is because classes are only cut by about six to eight minutes.
Assistant Principal of Administration Edward Henderson says Mondays allow more time for planning.
“I don’t see any difference between early release Wednesdays and Mondays. We get the same amount of things accomplished either way.” said Henderson.
