ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – A central Missouri school district says its first year of four-day school weeks appears to be a success.

The Harrisburg District ended its first year with four-day weeks Friday. The district dropped Monday classes and lengthened the school day to seven hours, from five and a half.

Superintendent Lynn Proctor says the district expected to save between $75,000 and $80,000 this year and adds the change to a four-day week doesn’t seem to have affected grades.

The Harrisburg district will remain on a four-day schedule next year.
