Four Day Week

The district's Board of Education voted Monday to hold school

Tuesday through Friday, with 45 minutes added to each day.

District officials estimate the change would save 120 thousand

dollars a year.

Before the vote, opponents said the shortened week would leave

students home alone and hurt the quality of education.

One parent told the board that there would be a petition drive

to seek a state audit of the district.
