GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) - A Phoenix-area school district that is one of Arizona’s largest school districts by enrollment estimates it would save nearly $4 million by switching to a four-day school week.

The 37,000-student district announced last month it would conduct the study in response to Gov. Doug Ducey’s proposed state budget.

The study was released Thursday, but the district’s board plans to decide later what cost-cutting steps to take.
