Four-day school gets thumbs up from public in Webster

by George Thompson

There was no shortage of input last week when the Webster Area School Board reviewed its four-day school week survey results.

The board ordered the survey to find out how well students, teachers, parents and businesses have adapted to the new system and what can be done to further improve it before the start of next year.

Survey results came back from students in grades 7-12, 182 parents/households, 46 staff, 17 businesses and were fairly consistent in a belief that the district should continue on with the program.

An overwhelming majority of the students support four-day school. Only six said they would like to go back to five-day school, and two of those were seniors.

The Webster school district started the four-day calendar in September 2011.
