A Review of the Pilot Program of Year-Round Education in Virginia Beach, Virginia.
Virginia Beach City Public Schools, VA.
This report summarizes the planning, preparation, and implementation efforts to operate a 45-15 pilot program in Virginia Beach, Virginia. This year-round schools project, undertaken in November 1971, required 18 months of planning. Electing to use a cycled-attendance plan, the program was established in selected schools to ascertain its feasibility in solving overcrowded space problems. Students attend classes for 45 school days and vacation for 15 school days with four such cycles equalling a normal school year. One-third more space becomes available during each 45-day cycle. The pilot project was implemented to generate decision-making data before committing all schools and resources to the program. Evaluation activities were planned to determine the effect of cycle attendance, year-round education on learning, the community, and the expenditures of capital and operation funds. At the time of this report, evaluation data was not yet available. (Author/DW)
