More Information on 4-Day School Week

This link provides a fairly concise and easy to read overview of the benefits and concerns of moving to a 4-day school week.

Some have asked if we are really serious about this. I would characterize our interest as more curious than serious at this point.

However, I personally feel that the benefits may merit some serious discussion.

Moving forward from here would involve more research and study of the costs, benefits and concerns. Then we would have to take the information directly to the parents in the schools and to the greater community to see if there is any interest.

Hi! I'm from the North Putnam School Corporation, which is where the discussion the 4-day school week in Indiana began. Mr. Pride, our superintendant, hopes to hear from the state by the end of this week. He has already submitted the rationale and all that Dr. Reed asked for. I'm sure the media will keep you posted if it passes! :)
