Evaluating the Four-Day School Week Policy

  • July 30, 2018


This Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) funding opportunity will provide up to $1 million to support an evaluation of a four-day school week policy in rural settings and an associated cost study. The goal of this award is to build the field’s evidence about the pros and cons of this policy and its impact on children’s academic, social, emotional, and physical well-being, as well as the potential impacts on their families and broader communities. This research is intended to guide policy decisions of educators in rural communities in ways that promote the health and well-being of the whole child.
