9+ The Year-Round School.
American Association of School Administrators, Washington, DC.
The 9-month school year with a 3-month summer vacation had its origin in our earlier agrarian life. Today's teacher shortages, overcrowded schools, and pressures to learn demand extensions of the school year. This publication analyzes five programs: (1) a staggered-vacation school year for all, (2) a full 48-week school year for all, (3) a voluntary summer program, (4) a summer studies program for professional personnel, and (5) the multiple trails plan based on time modules. A brief description of the Fulton County (Georgia) four- quarter plan is provided, along with major references to year-round college programs. An extensive bibliography is also included. (Author/LLR)
