Two MoCo schools have a longer school year

  • Published in Local

In an effort to stop students from forgetting much of what they learned during their summer break, Montgomery County Public Schools has chosen two elementary schools in Silver Spring to see if a longer school year, and therefore a shorter summer break, will lessen any backsliding.

In a pilot program that is expected to start in the 2018-2019 school year, students at Arcola and Roscoe Nix elementary schools will attend school from September 2018 through much of July 2019. 

The school year will be extended by four to six weeks, said MCPS spokesman Derek Turner.
