No Four-Day School Week For St. Joseph Next Year

St. Joseph School District will not be joining the roughly 170 Missouri school districts who are holding classes four days a week.

By a 4-3 vote, the school board there has narrowly rejected a proposal to adopt a four-day school week.

To help recruit and retain teachers, board member Whitney Lanning voted in favor of the proposal for the northwest Missouri school district…

Board Vice President Kenny Reeder says he voted against the proposal because he says taxpayers oppose the move…

Many residents voiced opposition to the plan during the public comment period, while teachers told the board it would give staff a needed boost.
