One School In Texas Just Adopted A Four-Day School Week!

Imagine how excited your kids would be to hear that they have a day off from school every week? Well, for some parents, and their likely gobsmacked children, that idea is becoming a reality. After a big change in state legislature and one superintendent's bright idea, kids of the Olfen school district in Texas will have the choice of optional attendance on Fridays starting next fall.

 The change came after Texas state legislature approved a measure switching the recording of instruction from days to minutes. Up until then, the state required 180 days of instruction, but has since changed the requirement to a minimum of 75,600 minutes each year. Falling in line, Olfen Superintendent Gabriel Zamora proposd the new school calender.

The schedule will ad 25 mins to instruction on Mondays to Thursdays.

Friday is an optional day when students can take tutoring and other kinds of academic help.It is also a regular work day for teachers to allow them work on lesson plans,enter grades into the computer,and so on.
Transportation is still offered to students five times in a week.- sounds like a good deal for all!
