Abstract

The purpose of this report was to develop and plan a daily schedule which promotes professional collaboration and meets the needs of the students at the new Lakeside Middle School. A properly structured schedule contains the organizational elements for delivering the curriculum to meet the needs of the students.

This research program involved the students in grades 6, 7 and 8. The students and staff are housed in four different schools throughout the district. A commercial building has been converted into the first true middle school (grades 6-8) in the history of the district. The school opens in September of 1999.

A master schedule was developed for a newly constructed middle school as a collaborative effort with a committee of key stakeholders. The schedule is centered on the needs of the student body. Common planning time is available for core teachers with the same students to collaborate. The master schedule reflects the belief that each student can succeed.
