A school district in Virginia is toying with the idea of 4 day school weeks to reduce operating costs and environmental impact. They are envisioning lower utility bills, less school buses and commuting students/teachers on the road among other benefits. Detractors say that 4 days would be too little time to get needed school work done. Some say 5 is barely enough. Alternatives have also been suggested, such as more efficient, eco friendly heating and cooling at the schools along with alternate power for buses.
