Good Day. I have a question about the supply of agendas for students of the High School. I have heard that they were not being given for students in 9th or 10th Grades. I have heard that it was due to the fact that previous year’s students did not like them or use them. I do not know if this is true. Can you confirm this information? I was also hoping that I would be able to suggest this to the school to supply agendas to students. Agendas help students with organization, and being accountable. The previous reply to a Grapevine post stated that, “Students are being encouraged to use their electronic devices to keep track of assignments. In addition, many teachers have assignments posted on Google Classroom.” Some students may not have personal electronic devices that they can use during the school days. Also, some teachers don’t use Google Classroom. In the High School, I receive many assignments, and need a place to write them down. I understand that these may be costly for the district, but they are beneficial to students. I would understand the removal of agendas for students who are given Chromebooks to carry around, but currently in High School we do not have personal Chromebooks. I would like to know if this is a removal for only this year – if during the next school year all High Schoolers receive Chromebooks and are taught to use Google Calendars, or if this is a permanent thing. If I were to suggest this be made available to students, who would I contact? Would it be best to contact a representative of the SFA Senate, or my counselor? Thank you for your time, and I look forward to a reply.

A. You could make the suggestion to the principal. You could also purchase an agenda.
