On March 28, 2019, the EBF 4 Day School Week Exploration Committee met.  The committee was made up of EBF board members, EBF administrators, teachers, parents, and community members. 

Dr. Cook, EBF Superintendent, defined the purpose of the committee, the rationale for the 4-day school week, the pros and cons of a 4-day week, introduced a user’s guide for the 4-day school week and results of a teacher survey. Dr. Cook also defined a timeline for implementation if EBF families were supportive of the measure.  Due to the complexity of the change and the need to conduct additional analysis and gain public opinion; the 4-day week would not be started next school year, but could potentially begin in the 2020-21 academic year if supported by EBF families. 
The committee then broke into small groups to discuss the pros and cons, obstacles that could affect implementation, Mondays vs. Fridays off, and day length.  The groups reconvened for large group discussion.  In the upcoming weeks, committee members will familiarize themselves with the assigned article, and seek public opinion of the 4-day week.  A survey for all EBF families to gauge public opinion will be developed. EBF administration will lay out what a 4-day school week with extended academic days could look like and will gather analytical data on transportation and extra-curricular activities.
