Administrators given extra time to prepare high schools for changes ahead of consolidation

By Damon Lawrence

Roane County High School, Rockwood High School and Harriman High School are expected to have some training on block scheduling before those schools close and students move into a new consolidated high school.

“We have found that when you go to block scheduling, it’s a lot harder than maybe we thought it would be,” Interim Roane County Director of Schools Gary Aytes said last month.

An item that called for approval of the three schools to move to block scheduling for the 2019-20 school year appeared on the Board of Education’s August agenda.
