Pasco County is considering a four-day school week next year to save about $3.5 million, the St. Petersburg Times reports.
Bus drivers and cafeteria workers would lose one day of work a week. Teachers would no longer be paid for five lunch breaks each week.
A 33-member task force will decide whether to recommend shortening the school week to the Pasco County School Board. Marion County is the only Florida district that has approved a four-day week for the 2012-2013 school year.
Is a four-day week disruptive for students and teachers? Parents, could you cope with the change?
