Delayed Franklin Regional schedules sent by mail

The schedule's in the mail for hundreds of anxious teenagers.

Franklin Regional officials mailed schedules to every high school student on Monday, Superintendent Jamie Piraino said. Officials said Monday that they expect students will receive their schedules on Tuesday and Wednesday.

“We can roll out a full school day right now,” Assistant Superintendent Mary Catherine Reljac said.

Student scheduling fell behind schedule after implementation of the new student-information system was delayed in April. Administrators have been working throughout the summer to enter student information and program the new system.

Some seniors still have schedule conflicts with electives, Reljac said. Most problems concern elective courses scheduled for the second semester.

Those students received personal phone calls from high school administrators during the weekend, she said.

High school counselors will be available Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday to help students who have schedule issues, Reljac said.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
