Clipper Time

Clipper Time logo


  • 33 minutes of flexible time every day used for extra help, intervention, support, enrichment, or extension
    • Most Mondays = "Mentor Mondays." Students will meet with an assigned staff member to determine their schedule for the rest of the week
    • Tuesday-Friday, students will report to their assigned locations, which may be different each day, for intervention and enrichment
  • We've shortened each period by 6 minutes and put a 33 minute Clipper Time Block between periods 3 and 4.
  • Clipper Time is academic time. Clipper Time is not a study hall or an advisory. It is student-driven, targeted, and academic.


  • Clipper Time aligns to our mission of Rigor, Respect, and Responsibility.
  • Clipper Time aligns with our core values and expectations, as outlined in Falmouth High School's six skill rubrics.
  • Clipper Time aligns to both our School Improvement Plan and District Strategic Plan, as it promotes:
    • Improved Teaching and Learning
    • Community Engagement Through an Improved Culture
    • Access, Equity and Opportunity
  • Clipper Time is devoted to meeting the needs of all students at all levels of learning and readiness.
