A school district in Brighton, Colorado is now having school weeks that only consist of four days. The reason for the cut is because the district thinks that it will reduce costs by $1 million in just the first year. Also, with the weeks only having four days they won’t have to pay for the services of bus drivers and substitute teachers all five days.

Superintendent Chris Fielder stated, “A prepared tomorrow begins with the best teaching and learning today- and that requires attracting, retaining and developing the best teachers and support staff so we can deliver on our mission.” Since the district is also the lowest on funding, it’s hard to find high-quality teachers that would be willing to work at the school. Public Information Officer for the district, Tracy L. Rudnick, states, “We have had years when we have lost over 15 percent of our teaching staff because they can make $10,000 more in a neighboring district.”
