General : New Bell Schedule for 2012-2013
In the 2012-2013 school year, Broughton High School will expand its efforts to support high levels of growth for all students through a schedule that increases opportunities for relationships, enrichment and remediation.
On Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays, Broughton students will have the opportunity to attend Tower Time. With the goal of every Broughton student visiting the Teel Belltower on graduation day, Tower Time offers students chances for both remediation and enrichment. The Tower Time schedule revolves around students’ course schedules. On Mondays, students will meet with 1A or 5B teachers; on Wednesdays, students will meet with 2A or 6B teachers; on Thursdays, students will meet with 3A or 7B teachers; and on Fridays, students will meet with 4A or 8B teachers. Tower Time will be divided into two periods. For example, on Monday, students who have a 1A class in English, Math, Science or Humanities will attend Tower Time and then eat lunch. Students who have a 1A class in Arts, Career and Technical Education, World Languages, Healthful Living or Special Programs will eat lunch and then attend Tower Time. Not only will all students have access to their own content-area teachers during Tower Time, but also to enriching activities, such as ACT Prep classes at the Wade Edwards Learning Lab (WELL), Yoga, and guest speakers. Tower Time also allows the opportunity for students to earn the reward of a one-hour lunch in the event that they are meeting their potential or the BHS requirement of a 78% or above and 5 or fewer absences.
On Tuesdays, students will attend CAPS Class; this year, we are implementing a curriculum focused on relationships, goal setting and progress monitoring. Using this curriculum as a guide, teachers serve as academic coaches to a core group of students with the goal of sustaining a goal-setting culture where all students are provided opportunities to learn and to grow, where expectations are clear and high, and where students and staff focus on steady and measured improvement.
