I LOVE YEAR ROUND!!!!! Our first year was a school-within-a -school and any child in the county could register as long as the parents furnished transportation. It was such a success that we became total Year Round the following year with other schools following until our entire county (except the High School which is still in planning) is now Year Round. I teach in a school (K-5) with 700 students and teach 28 classes per week. K-2 are 30 minute classes and 3-5 are 45 minutes. I teach one grade level per day ( so I don't have to change materials between classes) with the exception of 5 Kindergartens which are scheduled on the mornings of my lighter days. Works out great! We're in 9 weeks and out 3 with a 5 week summer. This is great for teachers and students...we're ready for a break, but always anxious to return and begin a new 9-weeks. We have Remediation the second week of our break so those students are caught up when they return. We also have an Enrichment Program during each break. Our school has an After School Day Care which is available for students 6am - 6pm during the break. I could go on and on about the pros....as for the cons....the only one "I" know of is that some parents complain who have students in both High School and Year Round.
