I got a call from my son's charter school yesterday wanting to know what my thoughts would be about the school going to a 4 day school week. It would be Monday through Thursday from 7:45 am - 3:30 pm. Keeping this schedule would still keep the students well over the requirements from the State and Federal guidelines. They are siting energy conservation (the campus would be "shut down" on Fridays) and hopefully promoting more family time as the biggest benefits.
Any questions? What do you think? Please COMMENT!
