​Boulder High will have a new bell schedule for 2018-19. Click "Read More" for additional information from Principal Hill. Spanish Version

Dear Boulder High Community,

As students plan their courses for next year, I wanted to share again some changes to the bell schedule for the 2018–19 school year that I discussed in last month’s “Principal’s Corner.” I have also outlined what changes to expect with the new bell schedule, as well as highlighted some areas that will remain the same as the current schedule. We are optimistic that these adjustments to the bell schedule will address some of the limitations we experience and the feedback we received with our current seven-period model. It is important to remember that the start and end times of the school day will not change next year. Boulder High will still operate from 8:00 am to 3:30 pm. View the 2018-19 Bell Schedule.

Schedule Changes for 2018-19 School Year
1. We will be running an eight-period day Monday, Tuesday, and Friday.
2. Block Schedule classes will be 80 minutes on Wednesday (periods 2, 4, 6, 8) and Thursday (1, 3, 5, 7).
3. Monday, Tuesday, and Friday class periods will be 52 minutes long.
4. TAP period will now be known as Advisory.
5. Freshman Seminar will be held on Thursday before Advisory.
6. Students will have lunch either 4th or 5th period.

Areas on the Schedule That Remain the Same
1. Late start will still be on Wednesday morning.
2. Block days will remain on Wednesday and Thursday.
3. For full-time status, students must still be enrolled in at least five classes.
4. Students can only take a maximum of seven classes per semester (no exceptions).
5. Two lunch periods will still be provided.

Goals Around the New Bell Schedule for Next School Year (2018-19)

1. Reduced anxiety in our educational environment: Offer more options in our master schedule for the diverse needs of our student population.

2. More access to teacher time: Provide students with more opportunities to meet with teachers outside of class time, thereby creating more guided student advisory.

3. Greater utilization of classroom space: Use the physical landscape of the building more effectively. 

4. More student access to the testing center during school hours: Accommodate students with excused absences by allowing them to make up work or tests during school hours.

With this new schedule, we are not just changing the construct of the day, but also expanding the opportunities available to students. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me or any administrator.

Boulder High School is ranked the #9 best school in Colorado and earns a Gold Medal ranking for top schools in the nation, ​​in a new report published by U.S. News & World Report. Great job, Panthers!
