Tweaking School Schedules pt. 2

After thinking through what I typed regarding our ds #3, age 16 and his remaingin high school years, I'm considering that perhaps I will be able to crunch nine terms over two years (18-24 months), instead of crunching years 9 and 10 into the next 12 months (which would include summer school). It will take some more time for me to mull over the numbers game of dividing pages over fewer months, and I am NOT a huge fan of SYSTEMS or programs, so if I'm not as detailed here as you like, I am sorry!! I can post page number updates when I get that all completed and fit into a realistic time-frames each week. Do post any questions that you may have. Some friends just e-mail me privately, and that is fine, too.

I still may add one or two small items in this schedule for our 16 yo, but then again, maybe not! We'll see how he manages his time. He is between summer job hours and a different job. His summer job was with a business that only runs through the summer. He is waiting to hear back from other potential employers for work during the school term. He also needs to take initiative and visit those businesses to show his interest and motivation once again.
