Supt. Juneau: 4-day week often works in small schools


Of the 827 schools in Montana more than 15 percent, 53, have moved to a four-day school week.

As Box Elder's school district weighs the pros and cons of moving to a four-day school week, Superintendent of Public Instruction Denise Juneau did the same Monday afternoon.

In most cases, according to Juneau, the pros outweigh the cons, at least for smaller districts.

"For larger schools it would be difficult, but with a small number of students you have a community that is rural, " Juneau said.

The current highest enrollment in a four-day school is more than 400 students in Wolf Point.
