HUTCHINSON, Kan. (AP) _ Some Kansas schools are preparing for further additional cuts in state spending by cutting to four-day weeks.

The Cunningham school board in south-central Kansas earlier this month decided to adopt the four-day week for the district's grade school and high school. That will save the district about $45,000 on busing, utility and labor costs.

The term will be Aug. 24 to May 26.

At least 11 school districts in the state have adopted four-day school weeks.

The Haviland and Mullinville districts in Kiowa County approved the change for next year in March.
