We are in a true block schedule at our high school. www.erhs.org
We have six periods...on alternating days..
1-3-5 on MWF
2-4-6 on T-TH
Then they switch the next week.
so:
2-4-6 is on MWF
1-3-5 is on T TH
They are 90 minutes long.
They rotate with the weeks...on short weeks, say 4 days, they still rotate...so whatever ends Friday, the opposite starts on Monday...

If you need more info, let me know....
