A Cost Study for Year-Round Schools in Prince William County.
Knapp, John L.; And Others
A study of six paired schools in Prince William County, Virginia, involving schools at the elementary, middle, and high school levels operating on traditional and on year-round plans, revealed that given established attendance boundaries the schools were not operating at sufficient capacity to reduce costs through year-round operation. This report compares figures for both kinds of program, adjusted for compatibility, and describes in some detail the methodology used in the study. Extensive tables document the data analyzed.
