MS schedule works- if you’re in band or choir

Administrators lament lack of flexibility for non-music students

SOLON– Sixty-four percent of Solon’s middle school students participate in either band or choir.
But for the remaining 35 percent, there are no options except study hall.
The scheduling dilemma was discussed at the April 8 meeting of the Solon school board and options will be explored in the coming months as administrators attempt to align possible academic changes with a long-range facilities plan.
The Solon Middle School operates on an eight-period day, but the periods are now arranged in a adjusted block to allow for a transition to the high school’s block schedule.
