Evaluation of the 45-15 Plan, a Year-Round School Operation of Valley View School District 96, Lockport, Illinois. Final Report.
Valley View School District, Lockport, IL.
This report summarizes the conclusions and insights of several hundred people who have been directly involved in the 45-15 Plan for its first two years of operation. The 45-15 Plan divides the neighborhood served by a school into four sections. Each section attends 45 school days and then takes a vacation, 15 days long. The attendance dates of the four sections are staggered so that only three-fourths of the pupils are in school at any one time. This report begins by describing how the 45-15 Plan originated and how the evaluation design was prepared. The major data collected for the evaluation included student achievement, student attitudes, community reactions, reactions of professionals, and internal administrative adjustments. Attitudes were surveyed by questionnaires and interviews. Standardized achievement tests, administered by trained testers, were used with students. The report includes conclusions and recommendations coming from the evaluation. The appendixes include samples of the forms used for evaluation and a suggested plan of action for school districts embarking on a 45-15 Plan.
