JANESVILLE

Janesville high school students will have to take more classes in longer school days starting in September 2014.

That’s part of a larger plan to make Craig and Parker high schools more relevant and students more ready for college in the 21st century, officials said.

“It’s making sure we are ready for the future,” said Kim Ehrhardt, district director of instruction.

The plan is for more rigorous academics that get students more involved in learning, Ehrhardt said.

District officials and about 90 high school teachers have been working on plans, called Project Redesign, for a year. They revealed their plans to high school staff Tuesday.
