School district says year-round school would improve attendance, close gaps

For some area students, this may be the last time they'll need to get in the swing of school after a three-month summer break. La Crosse's Northside Elementary School will be turning into a year-round school, which means smaller breaks throughout the year. The school district hopes the change will provide stability and prevent the "summer slide," in which kids forget some of what they learned while on break.
