Equitable Master Scheduling

Master schedules structure the time, space, and resources within a school and district—and ultimately, the experience. As such, a master schedule should represent the culture, priorities, and values of a school community, including Linked Learning. This series provides school and district leaders both a process and practical strategies for master scheduling in ways that enable Linked Learning, equity, and opportunities.
