What are the impacts of a year round school calendar? Chris Maher, Superintendent of Providence Public School Department, asked University of Rhode Island students Kateri Gomes and Ana Nimaja to conduct an analysis on the details of year round education (YRE) and ultimately give the Providence school system a recommendation.
Through a thorough compilation of past literature and research, Gomes and Nimaja outline the different ways YRE can be implemented, the outcomes of those implementations, and how Providence fits into those examples. Their analysis concludes with a recommendation for what the Providence Public School Department should do. Read about their findings here.
