Full FLEX Wednesdays (also known as networking days)

For those of you new to NTH@C, you may not know that we have a completely different schedule for Wednesdays that we refer to as FLEX. On FLEX days, the school day is divided into 30 minute increments that learners will sign up for throughout the day with their various facilitators. Learners will sign up for their Wednesday schedules in advance using a google form that we send out each week. Here is the basic information that you need to know about the schedule for that day:


Networking versus no-networking days:

School will begin at 9:00am on networking/flex Wednesdays. You will report to your 1st or 5th period class at 9:00. If you are not on campus for 1st/5th, you will report to your networking class at 10:30. Networking this year will be from 10:30-12:00.

**All learners are expected to be at school all day on Networking days unless they have a release period.

Wednesdays that we do not have networking will begin at 8:50am.
