The Impact of a Rescheduled School Year: A Special Report Prepared for the Governor and the Legislature of the State of New York.
New York State Education Dept., Albany.
This report describes findings on the feasibility of extended school year plans and outlines several approaches which can be recommended for their economical and educational implementation. Six plans are recommended: (1) the continuous learning year cycling plan which will release 25 percent of existing space in the first year; (2) the multiple variations such as the 45-15 or 9-3 plan which will release 33 1/3 percent of existing space in final year; (3) the multiple trails plan which may release up to 35 percent of classroom space and/or 50 percent in an occupational training center; (4) the acceleration trimester plan which will release space for one class at the end of trimester four (a year and a quarter); (5) the acceleration quadrimester nine (2 1/4 years); and, (6) the acceleration split trimester and split quadrimester which will release space for one class at the end of 2 to 3 years. Discussions of economy, including Teacher salaries and staff utilization, and educational objectives are also presented. It is held that as a result of the New York State experience, this experiment is ready to enter into a more extensive, practical application in school districts which want to realize the basic objectives for rescheduling a school year.
