The Year Round School.
Cole, Wilma
This address describes how one school district overcame the problems of too many students for the available classroom space and of insufficient funds to provide additional classrooms. In one school a year-round program for students in grades one through six was proposed and supported by parents and teachers. A school calendar was established that required students to attend school during four 9-week sessions and provided a 3-week vacation after each 9-week session. Teachers and other school personnel were allowed one day following each session to prepare for the next cycle of students. The calendar also observed the same holidays and vacations, September-May, that were observed by all other schools in the district. Some of the problems encountered in the program since its inception in July 1969 and the solutions thereto are presented and discussed. (MLF/Author)
