LaVernia ISD Board weighs pros and cons of 4 day school week, vote could come in February

SAN ANTONIO (KTSA News) — Another area school district is considering a move to a four-day school week.

School officials with the LaVernia ISD took up the matter during a board meeting Monday night.

Board members heard the results of two focus groups and two parent surveys.

The first survey showed less than half of the responding parents favoring a 4 day school week.

Among the concerns they brought up, child care and the quality of instruction their children would receive during a 4 day week.

In the second poll, in which those concerns were addressed, the results didn’t change much but the number of parents favoring 4 days of classes climbed to 57%

The district says they are working with the YMCA to address daycare concerns, transportation and meals.

The school board didn’t make a decision at Monday night’s meeting but they will vote on the matter in February.
