This evaluation study centered on a Year-Round Education (YRE) program in an urban high school located in a large metropolitan city. Approximately 50% of the students in the school were "students of color." The primary purpose of the study was to examine factors that might influence students' levels of participation in the intersession programs the YRE program provided. The results suggest that levels of participation in intersessions are likely to vary as a function of students' gender, race, grade level, and level of academic achievement.
