NEW ULM, Minn, (WCCO)— Parents in two Minnesota school districts will have another chance to get their voices heard on moving to a four-day school week.

Both New Ulm, Minn. and Sleepy Eye, Minn. are looking to shorten the school week to a Tuesday through Friday schedule.

Administrators said this could save $100,000 in New Ulm and $80,000 in Sleepy Eye.

Some parents have already expressed concerns about child care and the toll a longer day will have on younger students’ sleep schedules.

Both districts are holding the second of three public hearings on Wednesday night.

Districts are expected to vote on the issue early next month.
