   G.5      SUMMER 4-DAY WORK WEEK

               RECOMMENDED MOTION: “The Hamburg Central School District
   will be involved in a work week program commencing July 14 through 
   August 22 whereby all 12-month school employees will consolidate 
   5 work days into 4 work days.  This will necessitate lengthening each day
   of the 4-day work week as negotiated per appropriate bargaining units, 
   as well as other non-represented employees.   The purpose of this program 
   is to allow the school district and its employees to gain information as to the 
   effectiveness of a 4-day work week as it pertains to 12-month employees. 
               Though this is not to be viewed as a step towards a permanent 4-day work
               week for the entire school district, it is in response to a national trend
               regarding financial concerns and changing social norms.  It is for these
               reasons that the school district is willing to investigate the practicality of a
               4-day work week.”
