• The National Association for Year-Round Education
The National Association for Year-Round Education (NAYRE) serves as a clearinghouse for information on year-round education and the broader subject of time and learning. Year-round education reorganizes the traditional 9-month school calendar to shorten the 3-month summer vacation and allow for shorter breaks throughout the year. This pattern more closely reflects the way in which students actually learn and reduces the occurrence of summer learning loss. NAYRE’s website contains year round statistics, research abstracts, calendars, terminology, history of the issue, more.
