In our district we are on an alternating block schedule. We seem to have 
discussions on block scheduling at nearly all faculty meetings.  For those of 
you on a true 4x4 I wanted some feedback on a couple of questions that 
repeatedly come up:
1) How do you deal with state assessments for those students who are not in a 
math, science, or English class for that semester? Is it a problem?
2) Is there a problem with students accumulating too many electives? For 
example, do the students who are in band or vocal both semesters for all four 
years receive 8 elective credits (or 16 if they are in both)?
3) How difficult is it for students who transfer into the district that was not 
on a true 4x4 or that was on a traditional schedule, or for those transferring 
I know there is no perfect schedule, but any feedback you could give me would 
be great! Thanks.
