FT. LAUDERDALE  (CBSMiami) – What might be good news for students could be bad news for parents in the Broward County School District, as the board is set to consider a plan to make Thanksgiving vacation a full week for students, so schools could be shut down in a cost-cutting move.

Under the plan, which will be considered at Wednesday’s Broward School Board meeting, students would get two extra days off, November 21st and November 22nd. Schools were already set to be closed Wednesday through Friday for Thanksgiving.

The district might save as much as $11 million, according to one analysis, by not holding classes for just 2 days.

While students would get a longer break, and the school district would save money, the move could cause a problem for parents who have to make arrangements for someone to care for their children if they work outside of the home, something that could be an unplanned difficulty and expense.
