Cloudcroft Weighs Four-Day School Week

Cloudcroft – Cloudcroft school board members are looking at cost savings as they wrangle with a $400,000 budget deficit. One idea under consideration is a four day school week.

The board will discuss the proposal Monday night.

The Alamogordo Daily News reports the school week would begin on Tuesday and end on Friday and the school day would be extended by a half-hour.

School district Superintendent Tommy Hancock says the goal is to save money on utilities and substitute teachers.
