Costs and Benefits of the Year-Round High SchoolLog in to Download
Released April 2013. In this report, Hanover Research presents an overview of the literature on the effects of year-round education on student achievement. The report also includes an analysis of the difficulties encountered by schools transitioning to a year-round calendar, and discusses the ways in which high schools have successfully adapted to them. The number of year-round schools appears to have grown by a relatively marked amount during the last thirty years. The National Association for Year-Round Education (NAYRE)indicated that 2.3 million students attended a year?round school in the 2002?03 school year, compared to only 360,000 in 1986?87. A majority of these schools are public (2,746), but 172 charter schools and 64 private schools have also adopted a year-round schedule.
