On Monday, Frisco ISD school leaders voted unanimously to make the school day 10 minutes longer in order to have a shorter school year next year.
According to Fox4News, board members voted to extend school days by 10 minutes for all students for the school year, thus shortening the school year by three days ending by Memorial Day.
A spokesperson for the district told Fox4News that there has been a desire from parents to end school before Memorial Day.
The district factored in staff training days, school testing days and the amount of time they’re required to teach in a year, according to the state.
The changes will not go into effect until the 2020/2021 school year.
