YEAR ROUND EDUCATION
It is the policy of the State Board of Education to encourage and support local efforts to implement year round education models in LEAs. The State Board of Education believes that the study and implementation of alternate school calendars, accompanied by other sound but imaginative non-traditional instructional practices can contribute significantly to school improvement in North Carolina. Over the next several years, each LEA is urged to explore the possibility of instituting a year round education calendar in at least one school site to determine its impact on student outcomes, facility use, capital and operating costs, and community support.
