Rich Township High Schools will adopt a flexible-modular schedule in Fall 2020. A concept introduced in the 1960s, flexible modular scheduling breaks the school day into about 20-30 minute modules or “mods”, rather than the standard seven period day. Classes may take up only one mod or more, and may meet once or several times a week. This form of scheduling ultimately allows for maximum flexibility and greater access to resources.
This type of schedule will better prepare students with the skills needed for postsecondary success, increase access and availability of teachers for students who seek additional help, and offer a variety of group and individual instruction.
