ALAMOGORDO, N.M. (KRQE) - Students in one New Mexico school district could soon be getting a lot more schooling.
According to the Alamogordo Daily Times, the Alamogordo School District is considering a year-round school which would require 240 school days instead of the current 162.
The superintendent says the extra days will not only provide additional instruction, but will also help the district better measure student success.
Creating a year-round school won't be cheap. The district would have to get bonds to help pay for extra costs including utilities.
Right now the district is just talking about the change. No final action has been taken.
