Re: Build Season Schedule Questions?

We're 4:00-7:00 every weekday (in theory). In practice, during the last couple build season weeks, we start to push to 7:30... then 8:00... 8:45... etc.

(Note: Because of build space constraints, on any given day we can only have 10-12 students building, so we generally retain the most core members and rotate out others. Newer kids might find themselves coming in twice a week, etc).

Re: Build Season Schedule Questions?

6-9 M-Th then 10:00-5:30 with an hour for lunch at 1 on the weekends, depending on your position on the team you are expected to be at most of the meetings, some people got to every meeting, some people can only make the weekends due to homework and sports. You have to be at certain amount to be considered for drive or pit crew.

Re: Build Season Schedule Questions?

Full team meetings are from 2-8 on Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday (with Friday being optional) and 9-2 on Saturday. We have separate driver practice sometimes on Monday and Wednesday.

The school kicks us out at 2 on Saturday and isn't open on Sunday, which sucks because longer uninterrupted weekend meetings could be really productive.

Re: Build Season Schedule Questions?

FRC 4607 Build Season Weekly Schedule:

Mon: 3-10PM: Department Sessions*
Tue: 3-4:30PM: Leadership Meetings; 3-10PM Department Sessions
Wed: 7AM-8AM Large Group Meeting** (LGM); 3-4PM LGM
Thu: 3-10PM Department Sessions
Fri: 3-10PM Department Sessions
Saturday: Department Sessions (9-9:15AM LGM); 8AM-11PM

*Department Sessions are meant for each department to schedule meeting times to accomplish specific goals.
**Large Group Meeting (LGM) is for all students in FRC 4607. This meeting is designed to broadcast all pertinent information across all channels. This allows all members to see what is happening in all departments of 4607. Essentially, this is our clearinghouse meeting each week.

New this year is a Hub Meeting for student leaders and mentors. The day has yet to be determined.

The Saturday times are a hard pill to swallow. Have you checked with your Community Ed? Usually they have some say on how to schedule buildings and rooms. This is how we (4607) have established our times in the past. It is worth a look.

Re: Build Season Schedule Questions?

2869 Schedule

Weekdays
We technically have days from 2:30 - 7:30 during the build season however very few days do we ever actually go that late as our mentors are tired and have other commitments. More realistically is 2:30 to 5 every week day.

and then we have Saturdays from about 11am - 3pm.

This year I am going to try to see if we can push Saturdays a little later so better mesh with my work schedule and give all the members some much needed sleep.

Re: Build Season Schedule Questions?

Our build season schedule last year was:

M-F: 5:30-8
Saturday: 9am-5pm
Sunday: 12-5

From what I've been told, it seems like we are definitely not doing a 7 day schedule this year. We'll probably do a 4 day a week schedule. I think that's a good thing. It should help increase grades and will definitely keep us fresh for each day we come in. From what I've been told, this shouldn't effect productivity. We won't be as tired and we should stay on task more.

Re: Build Season Schedule Questions?

We usually meet 3 to 4 nights a week and Saturdays. We had some families that wanted to keep Sunday obligations.

It's easy to get so caught up in the intensity of build that we forget we need some down time to recharge and get a fresh head. Taking a day off will only happen if you make it a priority as important as any other team meeting.

Long hours do not equate to productive hours. Individually, a lot of team members spend a lot of time thinking and brainstorming in between meeting so they come in with a plan of action ready to get to work.

But we're considering adding a day during the week.

I haven't looked into this myself, but I know that Caleb has the same opinion I do, so I expect the team leadership has explored some options.

I don't know if they've looked into this though. Thanks for the suggestion.

On weekdays except Monday, the hours are 5:45 pm to 9:30 pm. Saturdays are 9 am to 9 pm, Sundays are 12 pm to 6 pm. Once we're nearing the end of build season we open it up more though.
