Pueblo, Colo. (AP) - School officials in Pueblo are talking about four-day school weeks next year to save money.
Pueblo County School District 70 says it could save about $1.2 million next year with the shorter school week.
The savings would come from savings in staffing, utilities and bus service.
The idea for a shorter school week was discussed in meetings with parents about finding $4.5 million to cut from the budget for the 2009-2010 school year.
The Pueblo Chieftain reports that officials have not announced details about how the four-day week would work.
Officials plan to conduct a parent survey in coming weeks to debate the idea.
