4-Day School Week Study

Davis County Schools is studying the concept of implementing a 4-day school week for the 2023-2024 school year.
The district has formed a community study group comprised of parents, school staff, business leaders, and community members. This study group will be learning from other districts who have implemented a 4-day school week to determine if a 4-day school week should be recommended to the Board of Education for adoption. The community is invited to learn more about the 4-day school week through the resources provided and view panel discussions. The community is also encouraged to provide feedback by participating in surveys, talking with committee members, and attending one or more of the scheduled town hall meetings.


Remember that parent teacher conferences are this week.  Conferences will be held today from 4:30 to 8:00 and Thursday, March 2 from 1:00 - 4:00 and 5:00 to 8:00. 

While you are at conferences, please take a few minutes to complete a survey giving input to the 2023-24 school calendar. 

We are asking each family to complete one survey.  Surveys and return boxes will be found outside the office in each of the 3 buildings.  If you are unable to attend conferences and would like a digital link sent to you, please request this through email to becky.zesiger@dcmustangs.com.
