Area school districts trying four-day weeks

The Calera and Durant school districts are each experimenting with something new this school year. Rather than having students attend class on Fridays, the school districts are moving to four-day later in the school year. Fridays will be reserved for extracurricular activities and field trips rather than classroom time. Students and faculty not involved in these activities will find themselves with a three-day weekend.
