    In my opinion, changing the tutorial schedule would be a disservice to the students. I work at a high school that has the proposed schedule and it’s a waste of time for the teachers and the students. Students do not use the tutorial to their advantage and fall behind in their assignments.

    Instead of wasting $8100 on an outdated software those resources could be used towards cleaning up the school campus, buying school supplies, as well as funding other programs greatly! SJHHS teachers only receive $40 each for supplies and that extra money could go a long way for teachers. Tutorial is the only time where students can wind down daily and have a mental health break while working on anything from any other classes, helping relieve their workloads, especially students with packed schedules. I don’t think any student agrees on making instructional time longer and would rather keep the current tutorial. Hopefully all the teachers can realize how useless something like this would be and vote no! Save the lectures for college and use that $8100 for something much more useful.

    Couldn’t this change raise issues with overcrowding? Specifically, too many students could sign up to attend one specific class while some teachers/classrooms would have too few people. Could people potentially be forced into classrooms with teachers they hate or teachers who hate them? Could this change make it easier and more likely for people to ditch school? Will they give you detention if you are late to a tutorial schedule? Will zero period schedules remain unchanged, will they have less time than traditional block classes? Could this cause even more stress and work on teachers because they both have to deal with and supervise more students?

    This should not pass for many reasons including that the freshman who just entered the school and got used to the schedule will be forced to have a whole new schedule
