A central Nebraska School district may cut class time to save money. The Pleasanton School Board is considering switching to a four-day week to ease the district’s financial burdens.
The plan includes dropping Mondays or Fridays and adding 40 minutes to each remaining school day. The superintendent thinks it would save on utility bills, bussing costs and personnel salaries. Staff members seem to agree with the superintendent. Members of the community also be asked for their opinions next.
Eight school districts in the state already have a four-day week.
