ALBANY — A small northwest Missouri school district has decided to go to a four-day week, beginning in the next school year.
The Albany school board voted Monday night to make the change for the district's 450 students starting in August.
Superintendent Bryan Prewitt says each school day will be 45 minutes longer than the current days. He says the four-day week will save the district $78,000 a year.
KXCV reports that Prewitt says the change will also give teachers more professional development time.
The Lathrop school district is the only other district in Missouri to have a four-day week, but others are considering it.
