Officials in the Charlotte-Mecklenburg, N.C., school district say they are considering expanding calendars at nine schools -- taking a cue from other districts in the state that have adopted year-round schedules. Supporters say the schedule is beneficial to students and teachers, who get more frequent breaks. Critics, however, say implementation of such schedules often is tricky depending on the model adopted.
