In a move that could resonate in this community — both school students and parents — for years to come, a committee has been formed to delve into the possibility of changing the school schedule of Benicia High School.
At the heart of the matter is a simple question: How much is too much for students?
“We are trying to find a schedule that provides the best environment for students and the staff,” said Benicia Unified School District Superintendent Charles Young.
For decades, the high school has followed a six-period day schedule, with only minor adjustments taking place.
First period begins at 8 a.m., while those who take an extra course arrive at 7 a.m., and the day usually ends at 3:05 p.m.
