Iowa District Considering Four-Day School Week

January 15, 2014, 6:20 AM

Iowa District Considering Four-Day School Week
LAKE VIEW, IA -

A northwest Iowa district is considering switching to a four-day school week.

The East Sac County School District plan would have classes run from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. four days a week instead of 8:20 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. five days a week. Officials say the four days of classes would leave a fifth weekday for such things as parent-teacher conferences.

At a public forum Monday, some parents said they were concerned about finding day care and whether students would stay alert for a longer school day.

A final scheduling decision hasn't been made.

The district has about 1,000 students, with elementary schools in Sac City and Wall Lake, a middle school in Sac City and a high school in Lake View.
