Bemidji School Board learns rollout for five-period high school schedule

The Bemidji School Board was updated on the upcoming transition to the five-period day at the high school during their meeting Monday.

The school board voted last year to transition from a four-period day as a cost-saving measure.

Dr. Jason Stanoch detailed how the transition would take place, with the implementation expected to be fully rolled out by the class of 2027.

The first meetings with community members on the high school schedule change will come early next year.

The board also held some first readings on some policy revisions and heard a report on the strategic planning process.

This was the last school board meeting for Todd Haugen, whose appointment to the board earlier in April ends with the swearing-in of the two victors of the special election for two two-year terms, Justin Hoover and Julie Laitala, at the next board meeting in December.
