Wayzata myTime Block
myTime is a designated weekly academic support block designed to meet the academic needs of students during the school day. During this time, students will receive academic support, participate in relearning, make up labs or tests and quizzes, study quietly and collaborate with classmates on group projects. myTime has been implemented to support Wayzata High School’s mission and goal of preparing each and every student for postsecondary readiness.
In addition, LINK crew will lead monthly character and leadership activities for freshmen.
When is myTime?
myTime will occur every Wednesday between first and second block for 35 minutes. Passing time will be only 5 minutes prior to myTime. All other passing times will be 9 minutes. All other class blocks will be 75 minutes.
Why did WHS add myTime into the daily schedule?
myTime has been developed with the idea that focused academic support time will:
Strengthen connections and access between students and teachers
Increase academic support and homework time resulting
Allow students to re-learn and master learning standards
Meet the needs of students working, participating in extracurricular activities or who may be unable to meet with teachers after school: lessen academic stress
Allow students to achieve and strive for post-secondary readiness
How do students know where to attend during myTime?
Students will either be assigned to a teacher or self-select to an area.
Assigned: Teachers will request students that may need reteaching or assistance in making up missing work.
Self-select: If a student is not assigned to a teacher, they will select where and what to work on during myTime.
Where can self-selecting students be during myTime?
Students self-selecting may chose from one of locations below:
Preferred Teacher classroom
Computer Lab (3rd floor)
Quiet Study Area (Second Floor Forum)
Peer Tutoring (Second Floor Horseshoes)
