Extended School Year in Michigan from 1969. An Interim Report.
Based on two interim evaluations completed at the half-way point of the first full school year (1972-73) of implementation, this report reviews briefly the current status of two separate experimental extended school year projects in Michigan. The first plan, a 5-term design adopted by the tri-districts of East Lansing, Okemos, and Haslett, offers students a choice of attending any four out of five 9-week terms or all five terms if they desire to graduate early or take enrichment courses. The Northville 45-15 plan report deals mainly with reactions from staff, participating and nonparticipating parents, in addition to providing some cost benefit analysis. Also reviewed are the evaluation studies of three other extended school year plans currently in operation--the Valley View 45-15 plan in Lockport, Illinois; the 45-15 plan of the Dale City section of the Prince William County Public Schools, Virginia; and the Quinmester plan of Dade County, Florida.
