Principal's Corner


Power-Block is integrated time scheduled during the instructional day to assist students in various areas.  The time is dedicated to the following topics:

  • Remediation (Math 1, Math 3, Biology, English 2)
  • Clubs (Key Club, FFA, FCCLA, Skills USA, Spanish, etc.
  • Mentor/Mentee Program
  • Choices Program (Behavior)
  • PBIS (Postive Intervention Behavior Supports)
  • ACT Assessment Preparation for Juniors (College Entrance Exam)
  • Advanced Placement Preparation for Assessments
  • New 4-H Programs for 2nd semester will include: Leadership Skill Building, The Extreme Makeover (developing your personal brand), The Reality Store.

Scheduling for the extended day Power Block takes time and dedication on the part of BYHS staff. When scheduling 750 plus students for this, it is important to place students in the right program (enrichment, remediation, behavior reform, etc.) The staff doesn't take this time lightly and we encourage students to participate in order to get the best experience from each assignment.
