Year-Round Schools: An Assessment of the Program's Initial Year in Four Chula Vista Elementary Schools.
Lahaderne, Henriette M.
This document reports the results of an evaluation of the initial year of the modified 45-15 year-round program. The assessment attempted to estimate the acceptance of the plan by parents, pupils, and school staffs; describe the adjustments necessitated by the new school calendar; compare the programs of the year-round schools with those of schools operating on traditional calendars; and generate questions for future study, or identify issues that could influence the success of the year-round plan and the educational program. The presentation begins with the major findings regarding the adjustments to and the acceptance of year-round schools, as well as a comparison of year-round schools with those on traditional calendars. The major portion of the document deals with the procedures and findings of the evaluation. One subsection each focuses on a particular group of participants such as those of parents, pupils, and school staffs. The document concludes with a discussion of the issues raised by the findings. Six appendixes contain summary data and samples of the forms and memos used in the evaluation procedures. (Page 66 may reproduce poorly.) (Author/DN)
