High schools return to block schedule next year

Salem-Keizer’s six large high schools (McKay, McNary, North Salem, South Salem, Sprague, and West Salem) will return to an eight-period block schedule next school year. The block schedule will allow students one more course opportunity than the current seven-period schedule.

Under the eight-period block schedule, high school students will attend four classes per day, Tuesday through Friday (90-minute periods), and attend all eight classes on Monday (43-minute periods). On an “A-block” day, students attend periods one through four, and on a “B-block” day, students attend periods five through eight.
