Exploring a Four Day School Week

 

Exploring a Four Day School Week

Traditionally, the Fayette R-III School District has held classes five days a week. In the 2018-2019 school year, the district began to research the implementation of a 4-day school week.  

The motivations for this potential change included:

  • Recruiting and retaining high quality staff
  • Improved attendance during the four school days
  • Increasing time for staff collaboration in preparing for high quality instruction
  • Increased quality time for families
  • Financial savings to allow for increased instructional opportunities in the summer and throughout the year
