Parent Attitudes Toward the Virginia Beach Year-Round School Pilot Project. Final Report.
Schlechty, Phillip C.
Part of the Virginia Beach year-round school program evaluation, this final report contains a detailed analysis of parental attitudes, beliefs, and perceptions. The data leads to the following conclusions: a majority (53.3 percent) of parents are dubious or negative toward the 45-15 pilot project; a slight majority of parents in the pilot schools (50.2 percent) feel that the project should be continued in the pilot schools; a similar majority feel that the pilot project should be expanded; only 39.1 percent feel that the 45-15 pilot program should be expanded to junior and senior high schools; and factors associated with negativism are those of family inconvenience and multiage grading.
