PUSD High School 7th period on the chopping block?

"Suspend high school collaboration period and reduce seventh period day options ($448K)"
Given the large number of students who use a 7th period to take AP courses, arts electives, and UC/CSU required courses, removing 7th period courses could be devastating to educational excellence at the high school level.
Attend the Feb 2 PUSD Budget Workshop 7-9 pm at AVHS multi-purpose room and let your voice be heard. Questions concerning the budget may be emailed to email@example.com.
Also, has anyone heard that the AVHS class scheduling for next year through ZANGLE is only allowing 6 periods? Does this mean that PUSD has already decided to cut high school 7th period? What was the comment Principal Coupe made at the parent scheduling meeting last week about this being tied to the failure of Measure G to pass? Can anyone confirm any of this?
