A Georgia school system that's been operating four days a week to save money will soon return to five days of school.

The Peach County school board on Tuesday approved the 2012-2013 school calendar with a traditional five-day week.

The Telegraph of Macon reports that Peach County public schools have operated on a four-day school week since 2009, when school officials made the switch to the shortened week.

The calendar passed 3-1, with school board vice chairman Ben McDaniel voting against the plan. McDaniel said his only concern was the district being able to come up with the money to afford returning to a five-day week.

Peach County is just southwest of Macon and about 90 miles from Atlanta.
