River Bluff’s Innovative Flexible Modular (FLEX MOD) Schedule was updated in 2018-19 to consist of a school day with 25 modules (mods) of time consisting of either 10 or 30 minute mods. Each day of the week is comprised of combinations of the classes into 8 Paths of instruction to encompass the entire school day. The schedule consists of a five day cycle that repeats 36 times. Each course (1 credit) meets 210 minutes a week within one path distributed into one of two phases (A or B) of instruction meeting either three days (B Phase) a week or four days (A Phase) a week. The remaining mods of time within a student’s schedule that is not scheduled into face to face instruction is Independent Learning Time (ILT). C1 and C2 within the middle band of our schedule are where students meet in their grade level CREWs.
