WIN Time Self Scheduling Back — For Now

AP Says Students Must Be Consistent To Keep Privilege

For the entire 2022-2023 school year, students were able to schedule themselves to wherever they’d like to go during WIN Time. When they returned this school year, however, they found that privilege was revoked. 

“What we saw last school year when it was implemented was actually a decrease in the amount of students that were assigned and scheduled,” assistant principal James Wheeler, Ed.D., the main authority over WIN Time, said. 

“If you remember last school year, teachers were scheduling students. We opened it up as a privilege for students, and what we saw was both – was the total amount of students that were having assignments and being scheduled drastically decreased, like overwhelmingly decreased, and we would contribute that then to the reliance upon the student, maybe lack of follow-up, not asking students, not double-checking to see if students are scheduled. 

“And then what we would have were students that weren’t scheduling themselves, and they were unscheduled,” Wheeler said.

Last school year’s WIN Time scheduling was less than ideal in the eyes of administration.

“We revoked that (the self-scheduling privilege), and decided to take it back to the original implementation of teachers-only scheduling,” Wheeler said.

Sophomore Jameson Warren wasn’t a fan of staff-only WIN Time scheduling. 

“It was a little bit annoying because during WIN Time we would have to go up to our teachers and tell them what we wanted, so it was just, like, kind of a nuisance,” Warren said.

In February, however, administration gave students the privilege of self-scheduling back.

 “And so basically, we’re doing it over,”  Wheeler said. “We’re trying again  to see if it works better this time.”

While the removal of self-scheduling at the beginning of the school year was criticized by some students who had used it in the previous school year, it had less of an effect on some freshmen. 

“I didn’t really care because I didn’t know what it was like before, being able to choose where you want to go,” freshman Annabelle Martinez said.

The ability to schedule themselves for WIN Time has been returned to the students — for now, Wheeler said, including that it would take the effort and responsibility of everyone, student and teachers, to make sure the privilege remained in students’ hands.
