SLEEPY EYE (AP) — A school superintendent in Sleepy Eye says the district needs to seriously consider converting to a four-day school week.

Superintendent John Cselovszki says the move would mean longer school days with more breaks. He says the shift would cut costs associated with busing, teacher substitutes, heating and cooling.

Cselovszki made his comments Thursday at a Board of Education meeting.

Board member Ron Geiger acknowledged that a shorter school week could help the district avoid other budget cuts.

Fellow board member Darla Remus worried that the change would create daycare issues for elementary students on Mondays when there was no school. Her colleague, Sheila Schmid, suggested that high school students could fill the daycare need.
