833 high school classes revamped for next fall


When Park, Woodbury and East Ridge high school students start school next fall, the current four-period day becomes a six-period day with three trimesters. Other changes will come as well including a re-vamped curriculum with the goal of getting all students ready for college when they graduate.

Over the past two years, committees have worked to redesign high schools to offer more intense classes for students who know they are headed for college.
