The interviews with Brian Koslofsky and Doug Runia cover how the four-day school week has been applied successfully to the MACCRAY School district. Sleepy Eye Schools Superintendent John Cselovszki expresses his displeasure with the fact that the Sleepy Eye School district was denied the opportunity to continue on with the four-day school week. State Senator Lyle Koenen explains that while he has been in favor of allowing school districts use the four-day school week model, he understands that the model may not be suitable for all school districts, especially those in urban areas.
