The school did not purchase agendas for students for the first time this year, causing students to rely on Schoology, or to buy their own agendas to stay organized.

Principal Matt Durst said that a survey indicated that less than fifty percent of students used the agendas provided by the school last year.

As a result, the school decided to stop giving them out, which saved the district $5,000.

Some students said that they would have voted differently if they had known that the survey would result in not receiving an agenda.

“Originally, I put that I didn’t want one because I didn’t think I would use it, but now I wish I would’ve gotten one,” said sophomore Noah King.

While King thinks that having an agenda is important to help him stay organized, he does not use one now that the school did not provide one.

Social studies teacher Jenna Sparks uses her own agenda to stay organized but does not believe that the school not providing them will negatively impacted her students’ success.

“Those who will use an agenda to stay organized will go out and buy one, and those who aren’t generally organized, would have just thrown is away,” Sparks said.
