Reduce the Week

Stories are starting to be written about reducing the school week to four longer days rather than the current five day week (read about it here and here and here). Have you heard anything about this? Know anybody trying it? What do you think about it?

One school reported:

  • better attendance rates,
  • higher student achievement,
  • fewer discipline problems, and
  • lower transportation and overall costs.

    DO IT. I’m really not sure there’s a downside to this — you’ll get longer periods with the kids to work on more integrated units. I know I enjoyed it when I had 90-minute periods at a previous job.
