High school mulls schedule change

MURRAY — New state high school graduation requirements in technology and financial literacy could bring a schedule change for Murray High School.

A committee has been set up to see if the single-high-school Murray District ought to stick with its seven-period day, or go with something else, such as the eight-period block schedule common in surrounding districts.

"The additional requirements made a situation where students are not able to take as many electives as in the past," assistant superintendent Steve Hirase said.

The committee will examine different schedules, then make recommendations, perhaps in January or February, Hirase said.

"We may find . . . the schedule we have best fits the needs of our students," he said.
