Extending the Scope of the School: Considerations for Reorganizing the School Year.
Hurnard, John R.
The purpose of this paper is to examine some alternatives regarding the reorganization of the school year and the organizational problems of space, cost-saving, and effectiveness. This paper emphasizes the variables that may be manipulated in reorganizing the school; namely, the length of the operating school day, the length of the student's school day, the length of the operating school year, the length of the student's school year, and the arrangement of terms and vacations. Three specific plans described are (1) student acceleration plans, (2) term rotation plans, and (3) multiple trials plan. (Author/MLF)
