Warroad school board approves 4-day week
WARROAD, Minn. - The Warroad, Minn., school board voted this week to go to a four-day school week starting next fall to cut district costs.
Phil Heppner, chairman of the school board, said the vote was 4-2 Monday night for the change.
Faced with red ink in the coming year, the board set a goal of cutting $900,000 from the budget, Heppner said. Going to a four-day week will save about $140,000 in busing expenses and some utility costs, according to board figures.
