The Four-Quarter Staggered School Year. 1/4 + 1/4 + 1/4 + 1/4 = 365. A Feasibility Study To Extend the School Year. A Research Study.
Utica Community Schools, MI.
The Utica Community Schools was one of several school districts in Michigan to receive a grant from the State Board of Education for a feasibility study of the year-round school. This study report shows that, with a mandated four-quarter plan, savings of nearly $100,000,000 can be achieved on construction costs alone during the next 10 years. The report covers a 5-phase, 10-year implication program designed to move Utica toward a year-round school concept. The report delays any final decision regarding year-round school until after each succeeding phase has been successfully completed. The decision to move beyond Phase I will be made following other careful analyses of the present feasibility study and contingent upon future State fundings. A related document is EA 004 003.
