10-10 Rule

In an effort to create the best educational environment, Porterville High School has adopted the 10–10 Rule to reduce the number of interruptions.

Any interruptions to the class are to be during the first 10 minutes of class and the last 10 minutes of class only.

All hall passes, phone calls, deliveries, all call bulletins, messages, etc., fall under interruptions. This program was implemented to insure all students have at least 30 minutes of uninterrupted time for teachers to teach and students to learn. Emergency situations will be considered on a case by case basis.

Parents please plan around this rule so we can guarantee your students the time they need to be successful. Thank you for your cooperation.
