Warroad schools start four-day week
WARROAD -- In 15 days, Warroad will start the grand experiment of a four-day school week.
It's a cost-cutting move, with an estimated savings of $140,000. With a $12 million budget, that's a 1.2 percent savings.
"The key question among the people was whether the dollars and cents saved will equal the possible hardship on the community and kids," said Rebecca Colden, publisher of the Warroad Pioneer weekly newspaper.
