Blocks allows a block schedule to be set up, with block names conforming to a school's naming scheme.

 

Many schools schedule classes according to a Block system, where each course section is assigned a particular time block.  Depending on the school, the time period of each Block can be either fixed every day (e.g. Blocks A, B, C, D and E, each 5 days a week, same time each day), or scheduled in a customized pattern.  Many schools also incorporate a rotating block system, where the scheduled pattern repeats in its entirety after a certain number of days.

 

One of two forms appears with the Block command, one for a fixed schedule (non-rotating) and the other for a rotating schedule (as set in School Profile):
