BHS Scheduling Update

Good afternoon,

We are excited to announce Brockport High School will implement an updated schedule for the 2023-24 school year! This updated schedule will maximize student access to programs, increase learning opportunities, and increase alignment to the New York State Education Department Graduation Pathways by adding one additional class period to the daily schedule. The hours of instruction at the high school will remain the same, 7:35 a.m.-2:15 p.m. and will continue to operate on a four-day ABCD rotation schedule.

The new schedule features:

  • Opportunities for students to enroll in additional courses that align with the New York State Education Department Graduation Pathways by adding a class period to the daily schedule. 
  • 70-minute classes (a change from current 75-minute classes)
  • Advisement will meet every other day
  • An increase in required credits from 5.5 to 6.5 credits each year, providing our students with more course options and flexibility, and the opportunity to enroll in additional courses during their high school career in their chosen pathway to graduation.   

Thank you to the BHS Master Schedule Committee for leading this continuous improvement process which provides additional opportunities and flexibility for our students. The committee convened in August 2022 and includes representatives from all departments in the high school.

During the course request process, counselors worked with students to identify additional course selections to account for this anticipated schedule change. Within the next few weeks, you will be receiving communication through Campus Portal that includes your child’s course requests and alternate selections for the 2023-24 school year. Please be aware that these course requests will be carefully utilized to build the BHS master schedule for the upcoming school year, so we respectfully request that when you receive this communication, it is important that you verify your child’s course requests are correct and accurate.

Once student schedules are finalized in August, we will inform families so that you and your child have time to prepare for the 2023-2024 school year. As always, there will be opportunities to address schedule concerns before the start of the school year.

Thank you for your support as we prepare for and implement our new schedule. We look forward to the increased opportunities and postgraduate preparedness this will provide for our students. 


Thank you, 

Sean C. Bruno

Superintendent of Schools
