TEACHER CONTRACT TALKS STALL
A source tells me teachers at the Laurel School District are saying the administration is not making a sincere effort to negotiate a new contract and have taken steps in accordance to their contract.
Their current contract states teachers must report to work 15 minutes early and leave the school by 15 minutes after school lets out. So, the school is empty of teachers 15 minutes after adjournment, no teacher is staying over to do class preparation or speaking to any students who may have questions.
Teachers have said morale is at an all-time low; certainly this incident is not helping.
