The New Ulm District 88 School Board is scheduled to decide on the issue of going to a 4-day school week during it’s meeting this (THU) evening. The switch to a 4-day week would reportedly save District 88 around $100,000 a year. Students would be off on Mondays, and the other school days would be extended by around 25 to 30 minutes each. District administrators are recommending applying to the state for a three-year approval. The application would include monitoring provisions to ensure that the 4-day school week plan is working. The District 88 School Board meeting starts at 7pm today at the District Administrative Center in New Ulm.
