Why ODSS Should Change It's Class Rotation
I strongly believe that Orangeville District Secondary School should change it's class rotation from only afternoon classes to include morning classes too. Presently, ODSS has a Day 1 and Day 2 this means that each student's afternoon classes switch every Day Two. This is a very useful system for students who are active in school sports or other extra-curricular activities where they miss classes at the end of the day. The rotation allows students to miss different afternoon classes when they are away making it easier to catch up on the work they missed. However, I think this system can be greatly improved by including the morning classes into the rotation. Instead of 2 different days I suggest that we have 4 different days so by Day 3 and 4 the morning classes will be in the afternoon. Even though this may be confusing and hard to understand at first the benefits of a full class rotation are impressive. It will allow students who miss many last classes to even out their work load when they get back, so they won't only fall behind in one class. Systems like this have already been introduced in schools like Center Dufferin District High School in Shelburne, Ontario. In conclusion, I think that ODSS should change it's class timetable rotation to include morning classes to benefit students involved in extra-curricular activities where they miss class.
