Master Schedule Update

Dear Rotolo Community,

I wanted to provide you a brief update to our master schedule concept.  We have heard concerns from our faculty and parent community regarding our proposed changes to the middle school schedule. After much reflection,  we have determined that we cannot move forward with our proposed schedule as previously presented. This was due to a variety of reasons including implementation timeline, a need to build a better understanding about MTSS, as well as limiting choices within the Exploratory sequence.   

We will be sending a more detailed communication 5th, 6th and 7th grade parents on Monday, January 7 with steps for selecting courses within the PowerSchool Portal on Wednesday, January 9. Our schedule, courses, and grading periods will remain unchanged for the 2019-2020 school year.

We remain committed to providing a high quality education for our students and committed to continuous improvement.  We value parents as partners and will continue to work together to meet the needs of all of our students. I hope to see you at our next Coffee with the Principal on Thursday, January 10, to continue this productive dialogue together.

Should you have any questions, concerns, or comments, please don’t hesitate to contact me at bryan.zwemke@bps101.net or by phone at 630-937-8710.

Thank you,

Bryan Zwemke
