Morton plans to add an extra mandatory hour starting 2019. 

The new hour is planned to take place before 1st hour and after 0 hour. Students will be given the options of either: Integrated Otaku replacing the after-school club, a new Shooting range currently being built on the second floor, Gender studies to replace half of math class, and a gambling class. The average number of school hours in the U.S.  is 6.64, while the Illinois average is 6.5 hours.  80% of students interviewed believed the extra hour to be a good thing. 

Chief Schedule manager Oscar Estario said in a leaked email, “…there will be an extra hour added to the school schedule between 8:00 am. To 8:40 am.”. 

While an extra hour would be added, some think it’s an hour worth adding 

Senior student Ricardo Sanchez commented, “I have 0 hour so it wouldn’t really affect me as much, I think it’s a good thing,” when asked about the schedule change.
