What is Arena Scheduling?
Rockwall ISD uses a system called Skyward Online Arena Scheduling that puts students at the center of the registration process. Similar to online scheduling systems used by colleges, students are able to propose when they want to take the courses they have selected. Recognizing how to best build their school day promotes students’ understanding of who they are as learners.
Why are we using it?
Arena Scheduling gives students more control over their schedules in an easy-to-use online format. In addition, students know their unofficial schedules much sooner than with traditional scheduling. We believe students appreciate the increased control over creating their own schedules rather than having a computer choose for them.
