Four-Day Week Meetings

Four-Day School Week Background Information

A working committee is meeting monthly between now and October, preparing information, studying research, developing four-day plan options, and summarizing pros and cons for implementing a four-day school week.  

The working committee's research and planning will be presented in public hearings which will be open for anyone to attend. The Governing Board will participate in discussions with stakeholders about the information prepared by the working committee. Feedback will be collected from each of the public hearings.

Additionally, the working committee's planning and information will be shared by email with all staff and parents. A survey will be administered to gather input and final recommendations from all stakeholders. Following the public forums and collection of survey data, an agenda item will be posted in late October for the Governing Board to consider taking action to approve or not approve a four-day school week for SY2023.
