4 Day School Week?

Someone asked if the Battle Ground School District (BGSD) has considered going to a four (4) day school week. To the best of my knowledge the answer is no. However, that doesn’t mean that it shouldn’t be given a look.

I’ve gathered nine (9) articles that purport to address the topic from a Pros and Cons standpoint. Most of the movement appears to have happened in smaller school districts and the BGSD is certainly not small (~13,000 students which makes it the 3rd largest in Clark County and ESD 112).

Rather than list the Pros and Cons here I’ll post the links so you can take the time to review them yourself. After reading stop back by and share your thoughts. Would the 4 day school week be the way to go or not and if so why yes or no?
