Liberty, OK – Liberty is 5th state district to go to 4-day week

MOUNDS, Okla. (AP) The Liberty school district is joining four others in Oklahoma in changing to a four-day week.

The Liberty school board cited declining state revenues as the primary reason for the switch. The new schedule for Liberty students will start on Jan. 5.

The change is expected to save the district money on transportation, utilities and food. Also, bus drivers and cafeteria workers are paid for one less day per week.
