A Report on Opinion Surveys of Parents, Students, and Staff of Four-Track Year-Round Schools in Cajon Valley, 1987-1988.
Reported are results of surveys, during the 1987-88 school year, of parents, teachers, classified personnel, principals, and students in the four four-track, year-round schools in Cajon Valley (California). Cajon Valley Union is an elementary district with 19 elementary schools (16 are K-6 and three are K-5), one middle school (grades 6-8), and three junior high schools The purpose of the surveys was to determine the effects of the year-round program as perceived by those directly involved in it and to determine their opinions about year-round schools. All respondents moderately affirmed the desirability of year-round schools. Both parents and students were more in favor of year-round schools than they had been before. Teachers and principals preferred the year-round approach because they thought the students learned more, were less fatigued, and had more interest in school. (Author/SI)
