At Ava High School, students have an eighth hour to finish up homework called DRAFT Time. In DRAFT, students are assigned a gold, silver, or bronze card depending on their grades and attendance at school. With a gold card, students can go to any classroom they wish and do whatever they want, within reason. A silver student gets free time on Monday and Friday, but the rest of the week they go to a teacher that they are assigned to, to help them with tutoring and class work. A bronze student is assigned a tutoring teacher the whole week and gets no free time.

I actually really like the DRAFT, because I usually get a teacher I like and I get plenty of free time.”

— Wyatt Starks

This card system is only in effect during the DRAFT, but the regular system is practically the same. Wyatt Starks, a student at Ava High School, had this to say about DRAFT, “I actually really like the DRAFT, because I usually get a teacher I like and I get plenty of free time.” The DRAFT has only been around for a year, but most students share Wyatt’s opinion that this new DRAFT system is great, even if they still have to work with a tutor every once and awhile.
