Zachary George started this petition to School Admin and

I suggest that we alter the traditional school schedule by replacing the summer vacation with seven, evenly distributed, one-week breaks. Additionally, the school schedule would be a four-day week, and we’ll still have traditional holidays off.  The length of the school day would remain the same. This revised schedule would have the same amount of learning time, just spread out differently to encourage a better work/life balance. 

 

Why?

With adopting my new schedule, students will benefit by not losing academic momentum during the summer, having a consistent and supportive schedule, experiencing less burnout, and increasing their school attendance.  My schedule will be advantageous to teachers because they will have extra time to plan more quality lessons, have increased attendance, and have less teacher burnout. Parents will be thrilled with this schedule because they will not have the burden of planning more than two months of expensive activities. Most importantly, all parties will be satisfied, especially administrators, because my schedule will increase the quality of student learning through year-long instruction.
