15-16 high school schedule changes announced
Less than "ideal" split schedules give district room to manage growth
    BRIGHTON - Admitting it's not the ideal situation for students, families or staff, School District 27J announced Feb. 2 that it will move to split schedules at its two comprehensive high schools beginning in the 2015-16 school year and beyond.
   “We believe this will be the schedule at our high schools for the foreseeable future,” 27J Superintendent of Schools Dr. Chris Fiedler said. “Schedule changes have a dramatic impact on our students and their families as well as our staff. Though these changes are not ideal, we believe that knowing this is the schedule provides certainty and stability for our students, families and staff.”
   The changes are necessary because of the district's continued enrollment growth compounded by an unsuccessful 2014 district bond election that would have built a badly-needed third district high school.
