Saline Area Schools is beginning to investigate the idea of adopting a balanced calendar, a form of year-round school.

The idea is to shorten summer vacation and spread those days off throughout the calendar.

The year-round movement has gained some serious steam in the last decade, with 3,059 year-round public schools in 2000 growing to 3,700 nationwide in the 2011-2012 school year, according to the Congressional Research Service.
