My school is not on a true four day week--however, as a continuation high school, the district only pays for 15 hours a week Average Daily Attendance per student. Students who come Monday through Thursday have the option of not attending on Friday. Students who were absent or tardy must come on Friday. Any student who wants extra help may also attend on Friday. Students with perfect attendance Mon-Thurs. also get a large chocolate chip cookie at the end of the day on Thursday. The school is open 5 days a week, but our Fridays have become very productive tutoring sessions--and our ADA attendance is much improved over last year.
