Year-round schooling gains popularity
from District Administration Magazine
Back-to-school has become a thing of the past in an increasing number of districts that keep class in session all year. The number of public, year-round schools — also called "balanced-calendar" schools — increased by 26 percent from 2007 to 2012, according to the National Center for Education Statistics. More than 3,700 schools operate year-round nationwide, accounting for about 4 percent of all public schools. About 11 percent of them are charters.
