Study: Four-Day School Weeks Not Helping or Harming Missouri Schools

A new study says four-day school weeks are not helping or harming student achievement and school building growth in Missouri.

The state has about 170 school districts holding classes four days a week.

Missouri Board of Education President Charlie Shields says lawmakers put the four-day school week option in place.

The study used standardized and end-of-course tests scores in math, Science, and English from 2011 to 2022.
