Class Size Balancing

TJHS Parents:

 

Every year, changes to students’ schedules are made in an effort to ensure they are placed in the most appropriate classes to meet their unique needs. As a result of these schedule changes, some class sizes become unbalanced. In order to maintain appropriately balanced class sizes, your child’s schedule may be slightly different when they return to school after the winter break. 

 

We don’t anticipate that a majority of our students will require a schedule change. However, for those who are impacted, it is important to understand that the need to balance classes is necessary, and that every effort will be made to keep the changes minimal. Please do not hesitate to contact me or your student’s counselor if you have any questions about this process.

Change in Students' Dismissal Time for 2014-15

As a result of TUSD’s new Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP) and the identified goals and actions established by all stakeholders, there will be a change to students’ schedules every Wednesday for the 2014-15 school year.  Beginning on Wednesday, August 20, all students in TUSD will be dismissed earlier than the current Wednesday release time in an effort to provide staff the collaboration time needed to focus on analyzing student learning and adapting instruction to meet students’ needs – for both interventions and enrichment.  Subsequently, the following early dismissal schedule for students at Turlock Junior High School will be implemented:

  Daily Schedule Minimum Day Minimum Collaboration Day
