Schedule committee meets tonight
The meeting is scheduled for 6 p.m. in the Lincoln Parish School Board's Title I conference room.
The committee was formed after some parents complained that the current "block" system, which allows students to accumulate 8 credit hour each year, encourages students to take a light schedule load their senior year.
"This is a time when they need to be preparing themselves for college," Ruston High School graduate Bert Jones said. "Instead, they are taking one or two classes, then taking the rest of the day off."
