Highland Council is to seek public views on how it could cut costs, including a plan to shorten the school day for most primary school pupils.
The local authority has suggested ending classes 30 minutes early for P4-7 to save more than £3m-a-year in staffing costs.
It will ask for comments on the plan and for suggestions on how it might make other savings, in a new blog.
The blog will be launched on the council's website on Monday.
The local authority said it wanted to give the public a say on its efforts to save £63.7m over the next four years.
Highland Council previously proposed shorter school days for primary pupils, in 2012.
