What is Flex?

Flex is a block of time where students have the opportunity to take their learning into their own hands. Centered around student choice and based on the mindset of “Enrich, Expand, Explore”, students may use this time to:

  • Develop a deeper understanding about a topic of choice.
  • Prepare for upcoming classroom assessments.
  • Connect with a teacher facilitator and/or peers to revisit topics.
  • Make up missing assignments, quizzes, or tests.
  • Prepare post-secondary and scholarship applications.
  • Complete assigned Career Education or Flex assignments.
  • Try something new.

When does Flex occur?

Flex occurs every Thursday from 9:34am to 10:34am.

Student Expectations

  • Flex is a mandatory 2 credit course.
  • Students are expected to be in class, actively participating, not wandering the hallways.
