Students have "Get Things Done (GTD)" time most days
Students who take 5 classes have GTD time most days, and students who take 6 classes still have GTD time once or twice each week. Students use GTD time for whatever they need: a snack, time in the Academic Resource Center getting homework done, a workout in the fitness center, meeting with their college counselor, time with a Learning Lab coach developing study strategies, meeting with a teacher, etc.
9th grade students are assigned to a classroom or the Academic Resource Center for their GTD time, and may sign out with the teacher on duty to go elsewhere. By 10th grade, students are ready to manage that time on their own.
