Planning a Year-Round School Operation (A Case-Study of the Valley View School District 45-15 Plan). Final Report.
Rogge, William M.
The year-round school operation of the Valley View School District is described from its planning stages through the implementation of the plans. A "45-15 Plan" provides for each pupil forty-five days of instruction and fifteen equivalent days of vacation. With the cycle repeated four times each year, one-fourth of the pupils are on vacation at any one time. The experience has shown that there are three main problems to be solved in undertaking such a plan. These are: student scheduling, teacher scheduling, and winning community support. The most difficult of these is student scheduling, but this problem can be eased considerably by the use of individualized instruction and by having as large an enrollment as possible in each school. Attached are appendices including instruments used in the study and questionnaires used among concerned participants. (DAS)
