At Mason City High School this year something new has been added in the biology curriculum. It is part of the New Design, better known as Phase II Flex. Approximately 160 sophomores are in the program and are known as low achievers for various reasons. One of the reasons is that they are no longer interested in school. The lack of interest may be due to the traditional school day (fifty-five minutes, six periods a day) or to the fact that the students have never achieved success in anything they have attempted in school.
