The Effects of Modified School Calendars on Student Achievement and on School and Community Attitudes.
Cooper, Harris; Valentine, Jeffrey C.; Charlton, Kelly; Melson, April
Review of Educational Research, v73 n1 p1-52 Spr 2003
Synthesizes studies of the effects of modifying the academic calendar in grades K-12 to do away with the long summer break without increasing the length of the school year. Findings show that evidence on such modification is weak, but that modified calendars are associated with higher achievement for economically disadvantaged students. (SLD)
