Green Valley High School’s current six-period schedule will change to a ‘block schedule’ at the beginning of the 2020-2021 school year. Instead of meeting for six classes each day (where they see their teachers every day), students will meet for eight 81-minute classes spread over two days (so they will see their teachers every other day).
One of the primary reasons for this change is that Nevada’s graduation requirements will change for the Class of 2022. Students will be required to have an increased number of credits and a block schedule gives students the opportunity to receive eight credits per year instead of the current six credits per year.
