Transition and Entry Time in Scheduling

Simon JeynesThe CACE RoundtableLeave a Comment

School Bell

One of the thorny issues in scheduling generally is how much, and whether, to give students any time to transition between classes. There has been generally a move to focus more and more on the amount of teaching time given over the course of the year and so every second seems to have become precious.

Design a Dual Credit Program that Works

Joe BakkerThe CACE RoundtableLeave a Comment

Dual Credit

Administrators, students, and parents can easily get caught up in dual credit opportunities without prioritizing their value in a Christian education.
