A look inside the hybrid schedule

Abigail Maoz is A cohort. She does her school work from home on B days.

We all know that this year has been like no other. Back in March 2020 students left Wilsonville with no idea of when they would return. Little did they know it wouldn’t be till a whole year later…

March 2021 was the start of the hybrid school schedule. The hybrid schedule is quite different. Students are split into two cohorts, A and B. Senior Jadyn Sherry doesn’t like this aspect of the schedule, she says, “It was random if you were with your friends or not and I am upset that it is senior year and I can’t see everyone before we all leave for good.”

Another controversial issue with hybrid is the class schedule. Basically you have periods 1, 2, and 3 for the first quarter of the year (nine weeks). Then for the second quarter you would have periods 4, 5, and 6 classes. And after those 9 weeks you would go back to periods 1, 2, and 3. This meant that you missed out on about 18 weeks of class time by the end of the year. 

This was concerning for a lot of students. Junior Karina Borgen was worried for her AP classes because of the limited class time. She says, “I feel like I don’t have enough time to learn all the course material. Everything felt super rushed.”

A poll was conducted asking students at Wilsonville high school whether they enjoy the hybrid schedule. 58% of the students voted for no and 42% of the students who took the poll voted for yes.

It is fairly evenly split on whether hybrid classes are enjoyable or not. Wilsonville has made it possible for students to participate and learn even under these unforeseen circumstances.
