The Return Of Year-Round Schools
The Return Of Year-Round Schools

Listen
AIR DATE: August 29, 2013

Until then the district is looking to return to year-round schedules as a temporary fix. But, what are the pros and cons of putting a child on a year-long schedule? If your child was ever on a year-long schedule let us know how you felt about it.
