Academics & Programs OverviewSince the 21-22 School Year, Oakland Tech has adopted a seven period modified block schedule. On Mondays, students attend seven 45-minute classes. The remainder of the week is on a rotating block schedule; four 90 minute classes on Tuesdays and Thursdays; three 90-minute classes and two 45 minute Advisory/Study Hall classes on Wednesdays and Fridays.
Each spring, Oakland Tech counselors and administrators give presentations to all students to discuss the course options available to them the following school year, including the necessary prerequisites and the graduation and college requirements each class meets.
Please Note …
- Oakland Tech has a student-driven schedule and all staffing, class periods and course offerings are determined by your initial course requests. Therefore, there is little flexibility to change, add, or drop classes once initial course selections are submitted. We cannot guarantee space in classes not required for graduation. We will try to honor your requests, but some courses may not be available due to student demand.
- Requests to change courses will be considered during the petition period on a case-by-case basis by your counselor. After the initial petition period, changes may only be made with the approval of an administrator.
- You may only select one course in each of the core subjects (Math, English, Science, History, World Language).
