SANTA ANA : Trustees to Choose Year-Round Schedule
The school board Tuesday is to decide on a year-round schedule for four elementary schools.
The board will choose between a schedule of 60 days of school and 20 days of vacation, or 45 days of school and 15 days of vacation. Either rotation will begin on July 1.
District administration is recommending the 60-days-on, 20-days-off schedule for all four of the schools because it will require a minimum number of room changes. A survey of school staffs and parents also indicated a preference for this particular schedule, a spokesman said.
The board’s decision will affect 3,621 students at Adams, Garfield (to open in September), Hoover, and Washington elementary schools, which were placed on a year-round schedule to ease overcrowding and accommodate growth.
