I do appreciate ALL of the feedback included on our facebook page. The idea of a 4 Day School Week did not come from the board nor the administration of DGSD. It came through our strategic planning process which included community and staff and was included in our plan as an idea to investigate. We did the investigation last year and the pros and cons of a four day school week were discussed at no less than three DGSD work sessions. At that time, the board felt that there was enough possible merit to the idea that they appointed a committee to proceed with developing a plan that might work for our community.
The board and the administration are listening to all sides of the issue as well as considering the research and information available. Many of them are monitoring this site as well as others.
Because we have been gathering this information, we are just now crafting our final proposal for board consideration. This proposal will be made available to the public as soon as possible and in order to give adequate time for community consideration, we have decided to delay the board vote on the issue to the January 19th board meeting.
