The Board of Education of the Chino Valley school district in Arizona approved Superintendent Duane Noggle’s plan to continue the three-year commitment to the four-day school week.
The calendar still provides for two weeks off in December for Christmas and New Year’s, and one week for a spring break March 14-18, 2011. It also provides for 144 instructional days and 148 days for teachers.
The Board’s decision came after their initiative for a $.73 tax over ride failed in a special election last week.
Juan Martinez, Chino Valley High School student body president, said, “The students have grown accustomed to the four-day school week.”
One hundred schools in Arizona operate on a four-day school week.
