Students currently attend 162 days of school.
Superintendent George Straface tells the Alamogordo Daily News (http://bit.ly/13oEJhO) that the advantages of a year-round school include the district's ability to measure student success, provide additional instruction and help educate students.
He also says establishing a year-round school will be costly.
Straface says the district would need to pass a bond election to finance air conditioners for each of the district's buildings that would be used as year-round schools.
The superintendent says he wants to collect more data about year-round schools and how it will help student achievement.
