Copy of 4-Day School Week Survey for 2024-2025 School Year
Reasoning for a 4-Day School Week:
-Attract and recruit qualified teacher applicant pool during a time of great teacher shortage.
-Increase retention rates of staff who may be considering early retirement or employment in a larger district with additional benefits.
-Increase uninterrupted academic time for students by eliminating all early release days for professional development.
-Increase student and staff attendance with the expectation to improve quality academic time with less substitutes in the building.
-Meet the needs of families and school district employees who live in a rural/remote area by providing them a business day to conduct appointments.
-Use school facilities and resources more efficiently by eliminating 1 day per week.
