Students at Skyline Need Longer Intervention Time

Students+at+Skyline+Need+Longer+Intervention+Time

The Skyline intervention time is the 24-minute period between second period and lunch period, from 10:21 a.m. to 10:45 a.m, which happens 2 days in a week before universal deadlines. Intervention time is the time period provided by the school for students to go to teachers if they need help or to catch up with class, assignments, or makeup works. However, there have been problems with the intervention time at Skyline and the fact that students are not utilizing it as intended.

“I think some [students at Skyline] use it usefully and others will probably just make it a longer lunch time,” said Geanie Erekson, a Sophomore who went to her classes and retook a test. She thinks the intervention time is a great use of time which makes her really like it. If she could change anything about the intervention time, the only thing she would change is to make it a little bit longer since she thinks the intervention time period is a little too short.

Gabriel Vassau, a Junior who went to have lunch at McDonald’s during the intervention time, said about the best thing to do during the intervention time, “I think it’s to go talk to your teachers about things you need to, but I don’t usually do that.” He added, “I think a lot of [students] do use it for what it is supposed to, like talking to teachers, but Juniors and Seniors usually just go off and do their own things.” He really enjoys the intervention time, agreeing that it should be scheduled more often.

“Most [students] don’t really use the intervention time for what [they are] supposed to. They have cars, so they just drive to have a longer lunch or extra free time,” commented one Sophomore who worked on her homework and went to ask teachers about grades during the intervention time. When it comes to possible variabilities, she said, “I would change it to a different period, not a period before lunch. I think the intervention time is too short, we could make Friday an intervention day, maybe.”
