Eight Block Schedule

In the fall of 1995, Centerville Senior High School implemented the eight-block schedule. This schedule consists of four 90-minute periods each day which alternate over a two-week period. This schedule was implemented in order to:

  1. Allow for students to earn a minimum of seven credits a semester
  2. Provide more time for students to organize and prepare for fewer daily classes
  3. Provide longer time for teaching without interruptions
  4. Allow more efficient use of time by reducing the number of passing periods
  5. Allow students to meet Core 40 requirements and still have room in their schedule for elective classes.
