A Survey of Parent Attitudes Toward and Perceptions About the Virginia Beach 45-15 Pilot Program.
Schlechty Associates, Chapel Hill, NC.
Dramatic changes in school calendars create the need for compensating changes in routines of family and community life. For schools undertaking year-round programs the extent to which families and communities are willing and able to make necessary adjustments certainly bears on the educational programs. Therefore well conceived efforts to evaluate the effectiveness of year-round school must consider the impact of the change on families involved in the program and the responses of families to these programs. An assessment of parent attitudes toward and information about year-round school is clearly a legitimate area of concern in the overall evaluation design for the Virginia Beach 45-15 pilot program. It was for the purpose of developing a systematic evaluation of the impact of year-round school on the attitude of parents that the data reported herein were collected. Data related to parent attitudes toward the 45-15 pilot program is reported here, and parents' responses to the changes they perceive to be required of them in order to accommodate the 45-15 pilot program are assessed.
