Organization for Learning

Vernon Barford employs a Day 1, Day 2 timetable schedule (see sample) and the school year is divided into three trimesters.  The timetable allows students to have extra time in core classes each day (language arts, mathematics, science and social studies).  Students also have access to physical education and three complementary / option classes during each rotation.  We encourage our students to try different options as they continue to learn about their individual gifts and talents.

Other advantages of our Day 1, Day 2 schedule are that it allows student timetables to be prepared individually (i.e. students each have a unique timetable) rather than moving in class groups.  This helps student meet and interact with more teachers and other students while also preparing them for high school.

The school day begins at 8:42 am each day while the end time is 3:15 pm.  To support reading as well as provide enrichment and/or extra time and support, the activities in last 30 minutes (2:45 pm to 3:15 pm) will change over the course of the year.  To begin the year students typically have reading time while further into the year students may be invited or required to attend LEAP (Literary, Learning, Enrichment, Application, Practice) time.
