Block scheduling is a type of academic scheduling in which each student has fewer classes per day.
A student or pupil is a learner, or someone who attends an educational institution.
In one form of block scheduling, a single class will meet every day for a number of weeks, after which another class will take its place.
Conversion to block scheduling became a relatively widespread trend in the 1990s for middle schools and high schools in the United States.
The United States of America, commonly referred to as the United States or America, is a federal republic composed of 50 states, a federal district, five major self-governing territories, and various possessions.
Prior to that, many schools scheduled classes such that a student saw every one of their teachers each day.
Classes were approximately 40–60 minutes long, but under block scheduling, they became approximately 90 minutes long.
