Feasibility Study of Full Year Public School Operation (Valley View 45-15 Continuous School Year Plan) by Detailed Analysis of Required Scheduling Plans and Accompanying Consequences. Final Report.
Gove, James R.; Page, J. Patrick
This report informs researchers, educators, and laymen about the Valley View 45-15 Continuous School Year Plan. The report gives a background of the school district, describes the 45-15 plan in detail, analyzes its effects on school and community, and chronologically summarizes significant events that followed implementation of the plan. The plan, developed mostly by professional educators from the district, was developed out of economic necessity and not primarily as an experiment. Under the plan, students in the district spend 45 school days in school and 15 school days out of school in each of four cycles. In order to have the school in continuous operation, only one fourth of the students are on vacation at any one time. Hence, the students are placed in four groups staggered by 15-day periods. Reprints of numerous newspaper articles discussing the plan are included. Some of these reprints may reproduce poorly. (Author/JF)
