The Lake Superior School District will have a four-day school week – for one more year.

According to Superintendent Bill Crandall, the Minnesota Department of Education has granted the district one more year of four-day weeks, with a caveat – they are to transition back to a five-day week for the 2015-2016 school year.

In 2010, LSSD transitioned to a four-day week as cost-saving measure. The district initially hoped to save a quarter-million dollars per year with the four-day week. According to Crandall, they ended up saving about $225,000 annually.

MDE commissioner Brenda Cassellius and Governor Mark Dayton have both said they prefer five-day weeks.
