Seven-Period Day Could Be Thing of the Past for Dist. 186 High Schools

The seven-period day in Springfield’s public high schools could become a casualty of the district’s budget crisis.


District 186 moved to a seven-period schedule three years ago in order to give students more course options and to allow the district to impose stricter requirements for graduation.


Superintendent Walter Milton says reverting back to the old schedule would not leave students better prepared for college, but it would save more than a million dollars a year at a time when the district needs to find as much as 12-million in savings over the next two years.
