The Jefferson School District wants parents input on having a four-day school week.

JEFFERSON COUNTY, Idaho -

Parents in Jefferson County will soon have a chance to weigh in on the district's proposal for a four-day school week.

On Wednesday night a committee will send a survey to every parent in the district, which will allow comments on the four-day school week.
 

In a few weeks they will bring the data from the surveys to the school board. 

Superintendent Ron Tolman said it is a hard decision.

"Those who have experienced a four-day week in other districts in almost every case they're happy with it, so it is hard for them to consider anything, but those who haven't had it are a little worried about it," he said. The Jefferson County school district should be making its decision by April.  If you would like to take part in the survey, click here http://www.d251.k12.id.us/.
