Six-period school day approved for next year


Somerset School District students will have a six-period daily schedule next year instead of the current eight-period day, said district administrator Randy Rosburg.

The Somerset Board of Education voted to make the change at its regularly scheduled meeting Monday night.

“Students wanted more consistency in their day,” Rosburg said. “It should work really well. The focus will remain on providing quality education with quality instructors.”
