Are there any other schools in the county that did not have schedules avaialable for the students at Ooen House last night? Trying to determine if it's a county or a local school malfunction.
Thanks!

Don't know because you did not say which school did not have it.

 

I can tell you that THE Paulding County High School did not have schedules available.

North had schedules - just all jacked up and wrong.  My freshman had only 3 classes assigned and 4 open slots.  I told the counselor that I thought he should be doing more work....

 

My junior had the same block class scheduled this semester as well as next semester.  He had a second semester block class (the second in a series class) scheduled in the same semester as the first class.  I would think that the second class built on what was learned in the first????

 

We were told that a new scheduling software was being used and they were having challenges.

 

I guess that the start of school just got here before they realized it was the end of July.

 

In the business world we have contingencies in the case when we will not make a production deadline.  I guess business sense does not make it to the school administration level.

As a former teacher, I can tell you scheduling can be a nightmare--on a good day.  I have seen administrators work 12 hour days and weekends to make sure schedules are complete and correct for the first day of school.

 

I am quite sure if schedules were jacked up or nonexistent--there is a damn good reason for it.  The last thing any administrator or teacher wants the first day of school is hundreds of kids wandering around with no place to go.

I heard there was a computer glitch. Don't worry it'll all work out. It's not like the first 2 weeks of school they do that much anyway. Except for AP/Honors type classes. And, at 13 and up hopefully they can function for a few hours alone.

 

Look at it as experiance for the real world when parents won't be able to walk around with them at the new job.

 

Before you start freaking out on me....... yes, I would have liked to have seen my son's schedule, yes, I would like to meet the teachers, yes, I would like to have the supply list, but in the grand scheme of things, it really doesn't matter. The schedules will get worked out, and hopefully you will send a very nice email telling the teachers how much you look forward to working WITH them to help ensure your child's sucess this school year.

I am more than happy to extend a little grace.  I guess my point is that in the "real" world if you miss a production date by two weeks then you don't stay in business very long.

It's called a new roll out.  Every semester there is a completely new roll out of the entire system. Many classes don't have enough students and many classes have too many. There are many factors that go into all this and some classes don't even have a place to meet. In the real world it is called tentative, or if you prefer, it is the beta until more information is garnered to make it right. That is how all businesses work.

Some schools were able to recover schedules after the Great Crash and some weren't. The bigger schools weren't able to catch up after like smaller schools.

Wrong schedules are a bigger nightmare than no schedules. No one wants 2000 parents telling them they're wrong when you already know they're wrong.

Peaches, I was told that the issues were with a new scheduling system.  If that is the case then contingencies should have been in place for the scenario that nothing works, schedules are wrong/incomplete, and there is mass hysteria in the halls.

 

In a services industry you do not even attempt to make a change in a production environment without contingencies and testing before a go live date.  Looks like the school system is doing their testing as part of their go live.

Funny there were NO major scheduling problems at East.  There was no major computer glitch in the county and there is no "new" scheduling program in Paulding County. PC has been using Infinite Campus for years. Praises to East for running like a well oiled machine.

That's hilarious. I always love it when the business sector is held up as the "real world," where all is true and properly handled. Companies large and small, especially large, make monumental cluster**** decisions every day, and if they are a large company, usually arrogantly deny for a very long time that there is a problem. They are absolutely no different from schools or any public sector in this way.

I personally hand scheduled 250 kids.....twice. As I said, some schools were able to recover and some weren't....just depends on where they were at in the process.
