Changes to Titan Times

Changes to Titan Times

Front of LCHS

Starting this year, we have made some changes to our Titan Time structure.  This was done to ensure an emphasis on developing strong relationships by reducing the student to teacher ratio.  The focus of the Titan Time content is mainly delivered in the Freshmen through Junior grades, with the seniors generally working to ensure all graduation requirements are met. 

What will the schedule look like? - The schedule will have the same Tuesday and Thursday period schedule with the same format for Independent Reading and Titan Time Lessons. - Grades 9-11 will have a slightly different scheduling configuration during the Titan Time period. - Titan Time ratio for teacher to student is no more than 1 to 14 with some possible adjustments to be made to current classes and incoming groups to reach this ratio. - If students were moved from one Titan Time to another, this was done by administration solely to balance numbers. - Seniors will have a study hall of sorts, but not an open campus.  It will be supervised with each student assigned to one of the supervisors. - Any needed senior information could be presented during this time in the commons.

What are the advantages of the proposed changes?

- Numerous seniors are already excused from Titan Time because of off campus classes and/or shortened schedules.

- Opportunity to pair with another Titan Time teacher and class would have added benefits for the students and teachers:

- One monitor reading, while the other completes book talks.

- One teacher completes the lesson, while the other conferences with students over needed items, for example:

- Grades, attendance, referrals, Navigator plan, course selection, etc.

- In crisis situations, students would already be familiar with both teachers.

Seniors that meet the following requirements can be excused from Titan Time:

- I am done at LCHS after period 1, 2, 3, or 4.

- I do not report to LCHS until period 5.

- I am not in the high school building at all this trimester because I only attend classes at IWCC.
