  • Essay writing was never my forte as English isn’t my first language but because I was good at math so they put me into Honors English. I really couldn’t be assed with reading King Lear and then writing a 5,000 word paper on it so I looked up essay services and HelpWriting.net was the first link to come up. I was kind of shocked with the quality of the paper they gave me. I received a very articulate and well-written piece of writing for like $20. Recommended it to a bunch of my foreign friends and now they use it too.

  5. 5. What is a Multi-Track Schedule?<br />A multi-track schedule is a specific type of year-round schooling in which students and teachers are placed in “tracks” of the same size<br />Students and teachers on the same “track” follow the same schedule<br />This schedule works out so different “tracks” are alternating being on break and being in school<br />(St. Gerard, 2007) (edweek.org)<br />
  6. 6. Pros to year-round school schedule<br />Children on year-round schedules tend to retain more information from one session to the next without need to review<br />Year-round schooling also boosts academic performance for students with learning disadvantages because frequent breaks allow time for them to review and acquire the help they may need<br />(Anderson, 2007) (St. Gerard, 2007) (edweek.org) <br />
  7. 7. …continued<br />The multi-track schedule can ease overcrowding by separating the teachers and students into different tracks<br />In some particular schedules, having a year-round school year can keep education in the U.S. up to the high standards of schools are the world.<br />
  8. 8. Cons to year-round schooling<br />Without a full summer break, teachers have to adjust to a small amount of preparation time for the next school year.<br />Year-round schooling conflicts with family life<br />Summer learning children experience is hindered<br />Constant breaks serve as a problem to prepare students for state mandated tests<br />
  9. 9. Legislation in North Carolina<br />In North Carolina, the Wake City County district are planning for an explosion in the amount of students expected to move to this location<br />Year-round schooling would help solve this problem by alternating school and breaks by putting different students and teachers on “tracks.”<br />Problems arise when year-round schooling is mandated<br />
  10. 10. Conclusion<br />Past is always a the best predictor for the future!<br />With that said, more and more districts around the U.S. are going to implement year-round schooling schedules based on the benefits and the growing amount of districts switching to year-round schooling<br />
