Pelican Rapids approves four-day school week
Pelican Rapids school board members on Monday approved a four-day school week to begin this fall.
With just seven weeks until classes resume, the district will submit a 70-plus-page application to the Minnesota Department of Education for approval.
The cash-strapped district hopes to save almost $100,000 in transportation, energy and support staff costs.
The 924-student district started exploring the option in May when taxpayers defeated a $700-per-pupil levy.
