A few of my colleagues and I have been informed that our schedules for Wednesday’s have been altered. The original schedule was for school to begin at 11:00am and to end at 3:30pm but now the changed schedule presents 11:00am to 4:05pm. My peers are at a huge disadvantage with this decision because most of us have jobs and responsibilities after school . I can name a handful of peers who start work around the 4pm and It’s not fair to them that they are given so little time to prepare for work because of this extended schedule. The reason for granting us half days on Wednesday is for teachers to have meetings in the morning but I find it hard to understand why those meetings can’t be moved to after school as they would be normally . We believe that a schedule of 9:00am to 1:00pm would better suit both ends . We need North Avenue and who ever else holds control over public schools to hear us and at least try to work something out that helps us .
