Ybarra unconcerned about 4-day school weeks, says it’s a local decision

I requested a comment from Idaho’s state superintendent of schools, Sherri Ybarra, on the new study of the impacts of four-day school weeks in Idaho. Here is her response:

“We are well aware of districts throughout the state that have made this decision to move to a 4-day week.  This is a local decision by schools boards, and we at the department will support districts regardless of their decision.”
