Summer vacation would be cut in half for students in Baldwin under a proposal for year-round school. Other breaks would be longer, however, amounting to the same number of school days in a year.
Baldwin Community Schools could make the switch next fall.
Superintendent Stiles Simmons says kids forget too much over the summer, especially math.
“That’s what we found here in Baldwin,” he says. “Our students are losing well over a month of knowledge and skills in the area of math due to the summer vacation.”
