Structure of the Day

Bell Schedule for the 2020-21 School Year

Our Online Start Time is 8:30!

Given the parameters established by SDUSD for secondary schools, our bell schedule this year will consist of three 74-minute classes (a minimum of 60-minutes a day will be synchronous through Zoom or Google Meet), 9 minute passing periods, a 30-minute lunch and 2 hours of flex time for students to participate in asynchronous learning. Every student will have a total of 6 classes in their schedule similar to a traditional school year. Students will take 3 classes for a 9-week span and then rotate to the remaining 3 classes for the second 9-weeks. That will conclude semester 1 and the process will repeat for the second semester.Students at Correia Middle School will participate in a 360 minute school day five days a week. 
While our bell schedule for our traditional “on-site” instructional program will remain 7:25 - 2:10, we have adjusted our bell schedule to the “online” instructional program to 8:30 - 3:15. See below for the sample bell schedules:

School Year Structure
Secondary schools in the San Diego Unified School District have moved from a traditional semester system to a “quarter” system for the 2020-21 school year. 

In a traditional two Semester structure, the school year is organized into two separate eighteen week elements.  A student takes the first half of a class from September until January. A final grade reflecting the work completed at this point is issued. Students complete the second half of the course during the same period with the same teacher between January and June. A second final grade is awarded at the end of the school year. Each semester is eighteen weeks long.
In a four Quarter structure, the school year is organized into four separate nine week elements. A student will complete the first half of the course between September and mid-October (Q1). The second half of the course will be completed between January and mid-April (Q3). In between these courses, the student will complete an additional subject with a separate teacher (Q2 & Q4). Students will participate in math, language arts, social studies, science, pe, and an elective over the course of the year.
