DAINGERFIELD – Students typically spend  between seven and eight hours a day in school.  While most of that time is spent as instructional  time, some schools are looking for ways to offer  more than the typical subjects for instruction.  

Daingerfield Junior High School has long utilized  a “T-period”, or time that is used for extra  work time in academic areas. Under new principal  Amy Billingslea, the school has expanded  the use of the “T-period” to include enrichment  clusters.

 “We utilize our T-period four times a week to  help students with their specific needs in their  academic classes,” says Billingslsea. “Fridays  are our days to spend times on their specific  enrichment cluster. We wanted to provide other  learning opportunities that could enhance  their life in the future.”
