ROCK SPRINGS, WYOMING (April 24, 2020) — Sweetwater County School District #1 Alternative Schedule Task Force will send a proposal to the Board of Trustees for a proposed four-day school week for the 2021-2022 school year. The options were narrowed down to three, with option 2 being the most favorable from the feedback the Task Force received from their staff and the public. The three options were:

 

Option 1

  • District students attend school four days a week. In addition to the student school days, District staff would attend one designated student day off and two ½ days on the designated student days off for collaboration, professional development, and/or planning each month.

Option 2

  • District students attend school four days a week. In addition to the student school days, District staff would attend every other designated student day off for collaboration, professional development, and/or planning each month.

Option 3

  • District students attend school five days a week, however on one (1) designated day, elementary students would dismiss from school two hours early and secondary students would arrive to school two hours later than their start time. District staff would have this late start/early release time for collaboration, professional development, and/or planning each week.
