Half of all school districts in Colorado have done so.

Officials in Brighton say the move will save around $1 million, and hope the real value will come in with attracting and keeping quality teachers.

Those teachers would have to exchange a three-day weekend for less pay.

The next public input meeting is Monday night at the West Ridge Elementary School from 7 p.m. – 8 p.m.

A final decision will be announced mid-March.
