02 - 21 - 2014 Longer elementary school days considered in State College
[CDT] - The State College Area School District administration is looking at ways to increase the quality of education in its elementary schools, and that process could include lengthening the school day, according to Superintendent Bob O’Donnell. The proposal is in the early planning stages, and nothing has come before the school board. O’Donnell said time could be added to the beginning of the day, the end of the day or both, and district leaders are trying to determine the feasibility of such a move. State College has the shortest elementary school day among the five public schools districts in Centre County.
