Butte Central High School administrators are hosting a forum at 

7:30 p.m. Wednesday in the auditorium for parents, teachers and others interested in a proposal to go to a four-day school week next year. 

The school has studied the issue for more than a year and is proposing longer days Monday through Thursday. 

A week would be added to the beginning and end of the academic year. 

Other schools that have made the switch looked at the improved attendance, fewer conflicts with sporting events and other advantages, a news release said.

School leaders say they encourage parents to attend to give feedback on the proposal.
