Jackson High School Schedule Won't Change

Jackson, WY – Jackson Hole High School Principal Michael Redzich says he will not budge from his decision to change the school schedule from four to seven periods a day. That's despite an outcry from students and parents. Earlier this month, Redzich told parents and staff who had been working on the school's schedule that the school will use a seven-period day he developed over the holiday break. Staff members and students claimed they had been left out of the decision. On January 13, more than 200 students staged a sit-in at the high school gym to protest the change. Redzich says the new schedule needed to be in place now so students can begin planning for next fall. He apologized for not telling those involved in examining the schedule that he would have the final say.
