2017-18 Bell Schedule Change

2017-18 Bell Schedule Change

This fall, Central Catholic will be implementing a new bell schedule. The process to make this change began back in 2013 when Central Catholic’s accreditation process yielded an Educational Improvement Goal to “evaluate and modify the current use of the school day to best support academic achievement.” This past year, a group of department representatives and administrators came together to research and look at current needs and trends of the school to develop a daily schedule. 

The resulting new schedule is a modified block with both 82 and 65 minute classes. In general, a school week would consist of three days of five 65 minute classes, one Cardinal day of four 82 minute classes, and one Gold day with three 82 minute classes with one utility period. 

Utility Period is an assigned class period where students will participate in a school-wide mass, assembly, diversity group meeting, or study hall. Specific utility period schedules can be found in the student planner and on the Central Catholic High School master calendar.
