SHELBURNE FALLS, MA (WSHM) -

There are new details on a Mohawk Trail Regional School District superintendent's hopes to explore the option of a four-day school week.

Superintendent Michael Buoniconti presented the idea to the school committee Wednesday night, hoping to get permission to look into a shorter school week.

The committee unanimously voted to approve researching the pros and cons of a shorter week.

"The issue facing the school district is very different than those neighboring us. So we have to be creative, we have to really think outside of the box to keep things going forward," said Buoniconti.

The school committee is also planning on hosting a public forum on the issue.
