4 Day School Weeks To Save Fuel

Thought I would share this with the forum.

Some rural (heavy commute) schools are switching to 4 day school weeks to save fuel/energy costs. I think we'll see alot more of this in the coming years. Recently, New Hampshire state agencies began switching to 4 day (10 hours a day) work weeks to save on fuel/energy costs.

How fun would it be to approach a 100+ bus school system with plans to save "x" amount of dollars by teaching bus drivers to use hypermile techniques to save fuel. Or, for buses with 100+ mile commutes each day on rural roads to coast half of the route! Check out the link below.
