Alternative Schedule Information

Sheridan County School District #1 implemented a 4-day week school schedule in 1983. The goal of the alternative schedule was to enhance the quality of education for students by intensifying efforts district-wide on a regular basis, in the areas of curriculum development and staff development.

Elementary school hours are 8:00 to 3:50, middle school and high school hours are basically from 8:00 to 4:00, although there are slight variations of that at some schools. The school year for the district is 148 days.
