The Meridian School Board met Thursday, and the meeting included words from MHS principal, Victor Hubbard.

Hubbard just finished his second year as the leader at Meridian High.

He spoke to the board about block scheduling, which would mean more time in fewer classes for MHS students.

Hubbard says he thinks block scheduling is vital for the success of high school students in the district.

"Number one, the students will be in longer classes," explains Hubbard, "and it gives teachers a chance to do more tutoring within the class periods."

Hubbard also spoke to the board about offering more courses for college credit at MHS.

    MHS was on block schedule several years ago when my children were there. There are pros and cons to both. Mari, you bring you a good point. Just think about all of the elementary teachers who have the same ill-behaved students ALL DAY EVERYDAY. I've heard that same thing about policy from a lot of teachers in the district. It's very discouraging.

    What about the students that are there only to disrupt the class everyday. Teachers do not need to have to deal with this for longer periods of time each day. As a concerned citizen I am concerned about our students who do come to learn. We were told that policy was going to be followed in this district this year throughout the system. It was not!

    Block scheduling tires out the teachers and students. It's good for slower classes,but with advance students it _____,because they're quick learned and fast workers so they're bored for the next hour. I think the fifty minute is good.

    Great!!!!I wish we would have had this when I was there a few years ago. I heard about block schedue, and I think it will be a good thing for MHS.

    Way to go Mr. Hubbard!!!!Every successful High School in our state is running some type of block schedule. I elated to hear that students will have the chance earn more college credits and graduate early by implementing the block schedule. Mr. Hubbard has done and is doing a very good job at MHS.
