Over the last 20 years, many districts and schools have begun to explore year-round education or a modified calendar in response to student under-achievement in low performing schools. Here, the authors detail their two-year study of Title I, year-round, or modified calendar schools that switched from a traditional to a modified schedule in order to meet the academic needs of students.

Year-Round Education will:
· Highlight the benefits of the modified calendar for teachers
· Explain the transition process through three real-life case studies
· Identify the principals' leadership styles as a transformational facilitator, transformational leader, transactional leader, and authoritarian administrator.

Features include:
· An action plan for schools/districts preparing for the transition
· Ideas for setting up an intersession program
· A comparison of teacher motivation and leadership styles from each case study
· A discussion on university partnerships and community support
· A review of professional work and literature on teacher motivation and year-round education
· An actual intersession brochure with classes listed

Written in layman's terms this book will be of interest to parents, community members, and educational professionals interested in student achievement and teacher motivation.

About the Author:

Shelly Gismondi Haser is an associate professor in the School of Education and Human Services at Marymount University and the program coordinator for the Marymount University/Fairfax County Professional Development Schools Partnership Program.

Ilham Nasser has spent over twenty years teaching in different Universities and training teachers and counselors. She is currently directing evaluation projects in school settings as a visiting researcher at the Center for Global Peace at American University.

Review:

Haser and Nasser examine three public schools in Fairfax County, Virginia that have switched to a year-round or modified calendar in hopes of raising state standardized test scores. Their report compares each principal's leadership style, highlights the benefits the year-round schedule holds for teachers, and provides an action plan for making the transition. (Reference and Research Book News)

Through three case studies of Title I elementary schools in Fairfax County, Va., the authors explain the change process and offer general information for schools contemplating the switch from a traditional to modified calendar. (Ers E-Bulletin)

Drs. Haser and Nasser have provided needed insight into how schools can successfully modify school calendars with full cooperation of the teaching staff and coordination with the community. This is the first book in the literature on year-round education and calendar modification that focuses on teachers' perceptions of the change and how their lives are impacted by it. Educational leaders who plan to implement calendar reform will find this book a guide in their efforts to involve an important stakeholder group in that change. (Dr. Charles Ballinger, executive director, emeritus National Association for Year-Round Education)
