3x5 Schedule Study: "The Structure of Time: How Trimester Schedules Impact Teaching and Learning in the Jefferson County Public Schools of Louisville, Kentucky" 
by Meredith L. Foster, Stephen M. Fry, and Christian L. Sawyer, Peabody College at Vanderbilt University (discussed in Spring 2013) 


Advantages of Recommended Schedule: 3x5 (handout from board meeting April 4, 2012, after work group recommended 3x5 schedule)

Schedule Comparison (handout from community forum March 5, 2012, when work group was still considering both 3x5 and 4x4 schedule)

Sample Schedules: Many parents and students asked to see examples of what a student's schedule might look like over the four years of high school. These sample schedules show some possibilities under a 3x5 or 4x4 block schedule. These are meant to be examples only; every student has different academic needs and interests and will be scheduled accordingly. (handout from March 8, 2012)
Sample Schedules – 3x5 Schedule  
Sample Schedules – 4x4 Schedule
