Moravia board of education sets goals for new school year

The Moravia Central School District's Board of Education has established its goals for the 2018-2019 school year, including the possibility of an extended homeroom at the high school.

At a meeting Wednesday evening, Superintendent John Birmingham said the district was considering implementing an "advisement block" at the high school. This would provide students some additional time to interact with teachers.

The new plan would require high school students to meet in the cafeteria each morning before heading to homeroom. Then, from 7:50 to 7:58 a.m., teachers would have the opportunity to check in with their students — that's four minutes longer than last year. In addition, Birmingham said the homerooms would have a much smaller ratio of approximately 10 students per teacher, allowing more one-on-one time with students.
