Starting this school year the Learn to Earn Charter Academy in Saginaw County will hold classes Monday through Thursday, but not all students are off the hook on Friday.

According to WILX News 10, Your Breaking News and Weather Authority, students that have attendance issues, need extra tutoring, or have uncompleted make up work will have to go into school on Fridays.

Superintendent Heidi Ferguson said:

"We were noticing a trend with more suspensions and students that were struggling academically, and it's really hard to provide the social and behavioral support during the school day or the academic supports during the school day."

Teachers say they'll benefit from the four day week. Twice a month teachers will do professional development on Fridays.

This will allow the teachers to come up with solutions geared towards each student academically and behaviorally.
