UPDATE 11:50a.m. From USD 489 Coordinator of Public Information, Elizabeth Jaeger:
The negotiations meeting scheduled for July 10, 4 PM, between the USD 489 Board of Education/Administration and the Hays NEA has been cancelled. When the meeting is rescheduled, we will notify you.
Contract negotiations between Hays NEA and USD 489 continue Wednesday, July 10.
One major issue– a Hays High School committee recommendation the school return to the block schedule.
Teachers taught five classes and had one 90-minute planning period each day. The 2012-13 contract required HHS teachers to teach six classes. If the current schedule recommendation is approved by the negotiating groups, teachers would continue to teach six classes, but students would have seven classes in the former 90-minute class block schedule. Teachers would lose one planning period every other day.
The meeting is scheduled for 4 to 6 p.m. in the Miller Room of the Rockwell Administrative Center.
