SENECA, Mo. (KODE) – Seneca students are in for a big change when they go back to school in the fall.
The district is moving to a four-day school week.
Classes will be in session Tuesday through Friday, with Mondays off.
Officials say they had been taking a couple of days off a month this school year but will officially move to the new schedule in August.
They expect the change to be a big boost in hiring and retention of employees.
“There’s a teacher shortage and there’s a staff shortage. And i think it makes our district – Seneca – a lot more competitive in that area with, in competition for finding great staff and great employees,” says Brandon Eggleston, Seneca R-7 Superintendent.
Fall classes in Seneca begin on August 24th.
