Roseville High School freshman, sophomores, and seniors will no longer arrive to school mid-morning during the state standardized testing week. Instead, the school implemented teacher collaboration Tuesdays for three-day weekends in the Spring, releasing students at 1:45pm on those days.
According to assistant principal Matt Pipitone, the school is distributing class time to the testing days from the now-shortened Tuesdays.

“In the past what we have done is what I kind of refer to as a ‘reverse minimum day,’” Pipitone said, alluding to minimum days in which students arrive to school later rather than leaving earlier. “What we are going to be doing this year is doing that testing on a regular-day schedule so that we don’t lose instructional minutes due to the state testing.”

Senior Gabby Ordaz deemed the change unnecessary.

“I feel like it’s stupid and I don’t think we really need it,” Ordaz said. “For it to be changed right now is totally irrelevant.”

Math teacher Levi Fletcher feels the redistribution of minutes for collaboration positively impacts teacher interaction.

“I think it’s a great idea,” Fletcher said. “It’s always been a challenge, especially during February where there’s the Monday holidays and where the teachers get together and are working together to try to better ourselves in the classes.”
