A Feasibility Study of the Extended School Year for the Hartford Public Schools.
Tracy, Frederick A.; And Others
This feasibility study is divided into sections presenting a brief history of the extended school year concept, an extensive survey of recent efforts at implementing the concept, the planning and implementation of the Hartford study, reports of five committees, final recommendations, and an evaluation of the study. Also included are a number of appendixes that provide supplemental information. The committee reports cover the areas of curriculum and instruction, staff organization and development, administrative concerns, pupil personnel and special education, and the community. Three recommendations were given to the steering committee: that the district reject the extended school year idea, that a pilot program be created, and that a format allowing individual schools to decide for or against the concept be adopted. The third alternative was advocated. (IRT)
