Our district is considering switching to a year round school calendar. It's where, instead of having 3 months straight off in the summer it's more broken up throughout the year. The calendar they are considering is a 45-15 one where the kids would be in school for 45 days and then get off for 15.
I'm torn on how I feel about this, on one hand it would be nice to be able to vacation in some of the cheaper off-seasons but on the other hand, I think it would be tough to find childcare with this weird schedule. And when my kids are older, they wouldn't be able to get the typical "summer job" too.
Has anyone had kids in year round school before? Did you like it?
