How does FlexiSched Work?

FlexiSCHED helps students by allowing them, with the assistance of teachers, to schedule time in their class schedule to get caught up on assignments, retake tests, receive intervention if necessary or if no extra help is needed they can spend the time doing enrichment. Teachers pick a designated day of the week, usually a Monday, to assess which of their students need extra help and in what areas. They will then go into FlexiSCHED and schedule intervention time for the remainder of the week for those students. Once created, these schedules can be modified.

What Features are Offered by FlexiSched?

The program is designed to provide targeted learning. FlexiSCHED offers the following features:

Single System

Students and teachers can easily see what classes they need to schedule flex time for, schedule the time, and keep up with progress all in the same system.

Teacher Requests

Teachers can request or require that students attend a specific Flex Period of time that they work on specific work or classes. Once the teacher has asked for it, the students can’t override their request.

Schedule Options

There are different schedule options available. You can start with scheduling an initial single flex period and schedule multiple periods, working around different students’ schedules.

Attendance

There are attendance reports so teachers can check to see which classes students are attending, and make sure the classes they requested have been visited. Teachers can also see what other courses other teachers are asking for flex time for.

Student Voice

Students are allowed to select which interventions they feel that they need. Therefore they create a personalized learning plan that is beneficial to them.

Feedback about FlexiSched

Many teachers and students are already using FlexiSCHED across the United States. Many of the students and teachers already using FlexiSCHED feel that it is an excellent resource for students who struggle academically, and the flex time can be used for students to get caught up in these classes. Many teachers feel that the program is not being used as much as it could be to reach its full potential. Students who take advantage of FlexiSched also agree that it is beneficial in providing extra help and support.

Some teachers were concerned that having flex time would cut down on already precious teaching time. Still, scheduling time during the school day for kids to get caught up on things they have gotten behind it is better for teachers and students so that they don’t have to stay after school to get it done. It also ensures that the work will get done since they do it at school under the supervision of teachers and attendance and progress can be monitored.

Overall, this has already proven to be useful in helping students get caught up academically, and it is expected to continue to be successful.

If a school has not used this program yet and is interested, they can attend a webinar that is offered by the FlexiSCHED team on their website.
