The Winfield school district is making the school day a little longer to make the school year a little shorter.

Starting Jan. 19th, students in the south-central Kansas district will attend classes an extra 15 minutes a day. The change will shave six days off the end of the school year.

The Winfield Board of Education approved the change this week as one of several steps to curb expenses. The district expects the shorter school year to save about $120,000.
