BEMIDJI — The Bemidji Area Schools Board of Education will meet in regular session at 6:30 p.m. on Monday, Nov. 21, in the district office board room.

Among their agenda items will be a presentation by high school principal Jason Stanoch regarding the high school’s transition from the current four-period schedule to a five-period day.

Superintendent Jeremy Olson will also report graduation requirements that will change once the five-period schedule takes effect with the 2023-2024 school year.

The board approved the schedule change at a Feb. 3 special meeting, during which considerable discussion took place regarding potential cost savings and impacts on curriculum.

The board is taking the 2022-2023 school year to update district materials and prepare teachers and staff for the schedule adjustment.
