KOTV 4 Day School Report Incorrect

"This evening at 5pm Channel 6 KOTV published a false report about Oklahoma schools going to a 4 day week next fall.  Wilburton was on that list.  This is NOT correct.  I have contacted them to try and find out how they received that information.  Our School Board approved the 5 day week for 2016-2017 at the April meeting.  At this time figures did not show that we would save that much by moving to a 4 day week especially considering the inconvenience to our district families.  however, if we continue to face budget cuts as we have since January, this is a possibility in the future."
