Every Once instructor needs 3 hours of time officially in their schedule for every 10 students they will be working with (15 minutes of instruction for every student plus some additional time for transitions between students when needed). To be clear, during those scheduled hours, the Once instructor will not be available in any other capacity (to be a substitute, aid, etc). To make sure that every student in the Once program receives their daily 15 minutes of instruction, it is crucial that class, student, and instructor schedules include explicit times and locations for every Once session. To make sure students don’t miss the same part of their base schedule each day, students can receive Once during different periods each day. Successful schedules maximize student and instructor time while causing the least amount of disruption to the general classroom instruction and rhythm.

Below are 3 sample schedules.
