It’s only July but the students in Queen Creek and Chandler Arizona school districts return to class beginning the week of 7/27/09. Both districts are on a modified, year-round calendar. Queen Creek students return to class Wednesday 7/29/09. Chandler students return Monday 7/27/09.

Are school districts in your area following this trend of modifying school year calendars?

I talked to a mom yesterday who said that some kids have gone back and others are going back this week.  She said it's the "new system" and that there is talk that some schools are already tired of it and thinking about going back to the old system next year.

That would never work here, too hot in July! This is all a part of many reasons I homeschool and love it. :)

No modified school year here either but the summers have grown shorter for the students due to more days during the year that they do not go, it extends the year into the summer and they start sooner in August than they used to.

We had year 'round schools when our enrollment increased beyond the capacity of the school buildings.  Once we all got used to it we loved it.  It was better for the kids and afforded more opportunity during the course of the year for family vacations/events.
