Teams: In order to provide a supportive student-centered environment, ASD middle schools are made up of teams of teachers
and students. Students belong to a team whose teachers provide the core academic subjects. The team structure enables
teachers to personally monitor the progress of the students on their team.
Blocked time: middle school teams are able to make use of blocked team time to schedule longer instructional blocks for labs
and projects or to allow for special events such as field trips.
Team planning: middle school teachers have team planning time that allows them to jointly develop instructional units, plan
team activities, and monitor student progress.
Elective programs: middle schools offer a variety of standard elective subjects and some special alternative electives that
depend upon student/parent interest and staff availability. These non-traditional courses are usually one quarter in length
and are designed to catch the interest and imagination of the middle school student.
