Feasibility Study of the 45-15 Plan for Year-Round Operation of a Public High School Served by an Elementary District (Valley View #96, Will County, State of Illinois) Already on the 45-15 Plan. Final Report.
Gove, James R.
This study examined the feasibility of a high school district operating under the compulsory "Valley View 45-15 Continuous School Year Plan." Salient features of the study include reporting of three different types of secondary year-round school operations and the surveys of the local boards of education, the local community, the local high school staff, and Illinois high school principals and teacher union officers. External and internal scheduling requirements are explained and findings from the Illinois High School Association and the Illinois Teachers Retirement System are summarized. A comprehensive legislative chapter reports on Illinois year-round school legislation. A fiscal analysis study includes the fiscal implications of the secondary operation -- past, present, and future. It is concluded that a 45-15 operation at the secondary level is feasible, but that certain prerequisites must precede actual implementation and that certain operational areas must be evaluated in depth.
