The Virginia Beach 45-15 School Year: Administrators' and Supervisors' Reactions.
Galfo, Armand; Ries, Roger
Virginia Beach School System administrators and supervisors were personally interviewed about their reactions to the first year of the 45-15 plan where students attend school 45 days and break 15 days year round. Opinions were expressed about the increase and utilization of space, problems of maintaining proportional enrollments, rising time demands, need for more secretarial staff to do record keeping, problems in multi-age grouping, improvement in discipline, attitudes of teachers and students, reactions of the public, the need to keep transient populations informed about the program, and identifying hidden costs. Strong consensus was lacking on many of these issues, as was agreement as to whether the 45-15 plan is a better plan than the traditional school. At this time it is recommended that the entire school system should not adopt the 45-15 plan. (BJG)
