SURVEY--YEAR-ROUND UTILIZATION OF COLLEGE FACILITIES, A SUMMARY REPORT.
REITER, JOHN L.
THIS SURVEY WAS DEVELOPED IN ORDER TO EXAMINE THE EDUCATIONAL AND FINANCIAL FEASIBILITY AND DESIRABILITY OF YEAR-ROUND OPERATION OF LOS ANGELES JUNIOR COLLEGES, TO EVALUATE THE VARIOUS PROPOSALS FOR CALENDAR CHANGE, TO EXAMINE THE PROBLEMS AND IMPLICATIONS OF IMPLEMENTATION, AND TO DESCRIBE THE ORDERLY STEPS REQUIRED FOR TRANSITION. MATERIALS WERE DRAWN FROM RELEVANT LITERATURE, INTERVIEWS, SURVEYS, AND QUESTIONNAIRES. THE ADVANTAGES AND DISADVANTAGES OF THE QUARTER PLAN, THE TRIMESTER PLAN, AND THE SEMESTER/EXTENDED SUMMER TERM PLAN ARE OUTLINED IN DETAIL. THE IMPACT ON JUNIOR COLLEGES OF THE CONVERSION TO A QUARTER PLAN BY THE UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA AND THE STATE COLLEGES IS DISCUSSED. REACTIONS AND OPINIONS OF STUDENTS AND FACULTIES ARE SUMMARIZED. PROBLEMS OF ARTICULATION, CURRICULUM PLANNING, COSTS, AND ENROLLMENTS ARE EXAMINED. IT IS CONCLUDED ON THE BASIS OF THE FINDINGS THAT YEAR-ROUND OPERATION IS DESIRABLE IF FINANCIAL RESOURCES ARE ADEQUATE, THAT THE SEMESTER/EXTENDED SUMMER TERM PLAN OFFERS GREATER ADVANTAGES AND FEWER DISADVANTAGES FOR CONVERSION, AND THAT CONTINUED STUDY SHOULD BE MADE OF REQUISITE LEGISLATIVE AND STATUTORY ACTIONS AS WELL AS ENROLLMENT TRENDS CONCOMITANT TO OPERATIONAL CHANGE.
