Warroad schools to go to 4-day week
The public school board in Warroad, Minn., voted this week to go to a four-day school week starting next fall, as part of cost-cutting effort.
Phil Heppner, chairman of the school board, said the vote was 4-2 Monday night for the change.
Faced with red ink in the coming year, the board set a goal of cutting $900,000 from the budget, Heppner said. Going to a four-day week will save about $140,000 in busing expenses and some utility costs, the board figures.
