The Extended School Year in the State of Utah.
Petterson, Carl Emmanuel
This study examines the extended school year and summer school program supported by the State of Utah during the summer of 1965. Facts, statistics, opinions, and other information enable educators and legislators to make informed decisions concerning the future of summer school programs in Utah. Information for the study was obtained from three major sources: (1) An oral interview with each district superintendent, (2) a personal visit to selected schools, and (3) questionnaires distributed to a random sample of parents, students, and teachers. The results of the study led to five recommendations: (1) The summer program should be continued and expanded, (2) increased communication and cooperation is needed between the community and the schools in the formulation of summer programs, (3) class size of the summer program should be investigated further, (4) student transportation should be improved, and (5) use should be made of any industrial, historical, or recreational facilities which the community has to offer.
