Kingman Schools Begin 4-Day School Schedule Today
Kingman Unified School District now has a four-day school week. That will save the school district about $360,000 per year, including the cost of transportation, maintenance on buses, facilities maintenance and employee overtime. Educators say the extra day will give students the opportunity to catch up on subjects in which they need additional help. The Boys and Girls Clubs of the Colorado River will also be available to help lend support with activities and field trips for children in order to offset the problem of parents who work and need a place for the kids to go. The new schedule started today for the 2016-17 school year. In order to satisfy the state’s requirements of classroom time, the school day will be lengthened, but with the nine-week schedule staying the same.
