Hays NEA/USD 489 Negotiations Continue Today
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.
