No 4-Day Week For ISD88 31 Mar 12

New Ulm Schools will not be implementing a 4-day school week next school year. District 88 had been contemplating the move as a cost-cutting measure, but the plan hit a snag when negotiating staff contracts. The deadline for submitting the application for a 4-day week to the state is this Sunday, and will pass without action from district officials. District 88 Superintendent Harold Remme says the school board may revisit the idea for the 2013-14 school year, however. The board cut around $1.5-million from the district’s budget recently, and Remme says more budget meetings are planned and further cuts in programs and staff may be necessary.
