Year-round school schedule proposed to mitigate learning loss, maintain consistent student access to services

Year-round school is not a new idea and many U.S. schools already use this model. However, in light of the pandemic and limited learning during spring 2020 school shutdowns, educators and officials are reconsidering year-round school. A year-round schedule would not only mitigate summer learning loss, but also keep students consistently connected to school meals and other crucial schoolprovided services. This schedule may also be more supportive for working parents, who otherwise are left piecing together expensive summer camps and child care. Shorter breaks spread out through the year also disperse the expense of child care for families. #covid-19 #education
