Stamford High Schools Moving to A/B Schedule | Stamford Moms

From Stamford Public Schools

After much thought and consideration, the Stamford Public Schools will move forward with an A/B schedule at this time for the 2022-2023 school year.

Beginning this fall, state educational requirements dictate all students must earn 25 credit hours to graduate. Introducing the A/B schedule at this time will serve as the first step in creating a schedule that allows opportunities for students to earn additional credits.

The administration as well as principals at all three schools are committed to working together to ensure successful implementation this fall.

“We appreciate all the work that has and continues to be done on behalf of our high school students and staff as we work towards offering flexibility, access, and opportunity across our three high schools,” Dr. Lucero said. “It is a credit to who we are as a community and the students we serve.”

The work spent over the last six years discussing, debating, and researching the types of block scheduling best for our schools from teachers, principals, and the administration will pay off as the school system moves forward with these changes, Dr. Lucero said.

“This is a credit to all of the amazing teachers, principals, assistant principals, curriculum department, staff, families, board members, and the students who remained committed to assisting in making this decision,” she said.

The next step is continuing to work as a team to create a schedule that provides greater flexibility, access, and opportunity for all of our students.

“To that end, we plan to work collaboratively to form a scheduling committee, composed of teachers, principals, building leaders, families, students, and central office leaders, as well as our program assessor to implement this plan,” Dr. Lucero said.
