Yeah that's crazy having a half day every Friday. I'd easily be able
to justify taking the kids out that day for a three day camping trip. Our
District has half day preparation days every other Wednesday. That way no one
disappears on Fridays. I can imagine the teacher resistance. Constantly
changing things definitely does get old. And the Canyons District has a lot
still up their sleeves.
The great thing about short Fridays is how little is lost when those days are
scheduled school breaks. While I didn't mind the schedule CSD is proposing
when I have had it, the idea probably won't make much difference as to when
families take days off.
