Since the first week of school, students enrolled in Supervised Study Hall have been allowed to visit the library to use the computers and get work done. May 1, however, a new policy went into effect that changed the policy for study hall students using the library.
The new policy prohibits study hall students from going to the library during all blocks except for block 3. Block 3 study hall is permitted to only send five students per day. Meanwhile, Open Study students are still permitted to use the library as needed.
This policy change was put in effect to help cap the number of students the librarian must to supervise throughout the day.
During the typical school day, “the library staff is supervising an average of 170 students which does not include students from Mustang Block or from class visits,” said librarian Lisa Myklestad.
Of these 170 students, 20 of them come from supervised study; five from each block.After the policy change, Supervised Study Hall blocks 1, 2, 4, 5, 6, and 7 are not permitted to allow students to go to the library. It was determined that these students do not need to use the library during these blocks because there are 21 desks and 7 computers in rotation for student use in the study hall room. However, five students are still permitted to use the library with a pass during Block 3 because study hall during this time is held in the Mustang Café.
