Area Schools Turn to 4-Day Week?

A school in Western Kentucky considers adopting a four-day school week.

The Crittenden County Board of Education thinks a shorter school week would be a way to deal with rising fuel prices.

Superintendent John Belt said the high gas prices have a trickle down effect, that impacts everything from bus service to field trips to food prices.

Neighboring Webster County went to a four-day school week during the 2003-04 school year, and has seen a rise in attendance and test scores since the change.
