Year Rounds Schools

We are almost through to the second track out for Ashley in her year round school, and I have had many people ask me how I like it. And this is just my personal opinion, so please take it with a grain of salt.

I think it works for us. As the weeks go on and on, Ashley becomes more tired at school. Going to school for nine weeks and then having three weeks off seems to be the perfect timing for her. And it seems that her whole class is tired. The first couple of weeks back after tracking out last time, Ashley did great on her behavior. As it gets closer to tracking out again, her behavior in school seems to diminish. Ashley is actually now on a daily behavior report as she talks non-stop it seems (no idea where she gets that...). And now her whole class is having issues and they are on an additional reward system separate from the red light green light system.

She only has a few more weeks until she tracks out, and hopefully she will rest up during December and be ready to go in January.

:) Glad it's working out for you guys!!! I wish ours was year round. Actually, I wish work were year round. I'd love 3 weeks off every now and then...

I LOVE our track out schedule. Jess is in 6th grade. This is only our second year doing track out. And I will say, her grades have been better the past two years they they have ever been. I am certain it is because of the break that she gets! Think about it. Most students do better the first part of school, then start to trail off. This way, they have several breaks and 4 "beginnings" of school each year! I hope that came out so that everyone understands what I am saying! lol

I'm sure it's an adjustment for everyone - glad it seems to be working for you all!

I personally think my daughter would love year round school. I know I would. I like how the the breaks work out, compared to how they are now.

I wonder if is why Kaylie's conduct gets so bad. Her's is talking as well and I don't know where she gets it from either.

None of the schools in our district do year round and I wish they would. It seems, from what I've read here and other blogs, it's a great way to keep the kids from getting burned out.
