Harmony School going to 4-day week

(CINCINNATI) -- Harmony Community School is looking to bring its students closer to the real world.

The school is going to a four day week next fall, with Fridays known as "Real World Friday."

The school wants students to add to their education by spending time learning more about the world outside the classroom. Students will be required to do community service or independent study every Friday to earn credit.

"I think this is just another component in the evolution of charter schools and of Harmony as far as doing some thing a little bit different that can ultimately benefit the students and the environment," said executive director Deland McCullough.

McCullough says the school expects to save about a thousand dollars a month in utility bills by closing one more day a week.
