From days to hours

CLEAR LAKE, Iowa – It’s happening across the area.

And it looks like another school district is getting on board.

Schools in Iowa are slowly making the switch to counting school time, by hours instead of days.

Clear Lake is now a part of that trend.

The change is mainly because of legislation that’s passed saying kids have to spend one thousand and 80 hours instead of 180 days in class.

Chad Kuhlers President of Clear Lake School Board says they’re ready to take on the change.

“I believe that it will allow us to get our kids out potentially at a slightly earlier time than when it historically has been which seems like it has turned into the first of June,” said Kuhlers.

Kuhlers says it should be an easy adjustment.

West Hancock school in Britt made the change this December.
