Polk County school board members are proposing a plan that would cut a class period from both high school and middle school students – a move that could save the district more than $7 million.
High schools would have six periods instead of seven and middle school seven instead of eight. Board members say the school day would stay the same.
The school district needs to slash $18 million from the budget in order to protect teacher pay raises for the upcoming school year.
There is a public meeting on the issue at Ridge High School in Davenport. It starts at 6:30 p.m.
