BRIDGEWATER, NJ - Bridgewater-Raritan High School is moving to a block scheduling format for students once the district returns from spring break April 14.
According to a message from principal Charles Ezell, it will be an A/B alternating schedule, with April 14 being an A day, and alternating every day after that. This will allow for longer periods of time for students and teachers to collaborate, and for teachers, students and family support to focus on fewer classes per day.
"A" day will have periods one through five, while "B" day will have periods six through nine and a standing tutorial at the end of the day.
In addition, the Somerset County Vocational & Technical High School will be moving to an A/B schedule.
Distance learning will then continue through April 17. Gov. Phil Murphy has announced he will not revisit schools reopening before April 17, so the district is not expected to be back on campus before April 20 at the earliest.
In his message, Ezell said there are still a number of things up in the air regarding the end of the year, including final exams, senior prom, senior awards and the graduation ceremonies. The district is working on different options, and more information will be available as decisions are made.
All district facilities remain closed to the public.
