A Research Design for Year-Round Education.
Virginia Beach City Public Schools, VA.
The School Board of Virginia Beach has conducted a two-year pilot program focusing on elementary school students who attend school 45 days and break 15 days year round. Four principal questions were proposed and researched by various independent agencies: (1) What effect does the 45-15 cycled-attendance year-round operation have on pupil achievement in reading and mathematics? (2) What effect does the 45-15 cycled attendance year-round have on the way pupils feel about school? (3) What effect does the first grade entry under the 45-15 calendar have on reading readiness? (4) What effect does experience with the 45-15 cycled attendance year-round plan have on parent attitudes? In addition, serious attention has been given to the operational and capital costs of the 45-15 experimentation. (BJG)
