Students at Free State High School likely will be spending another couple minutes a day in class when they return from winter break, all to make up for instructional time lost when officials evacuated the school Dec. 1 following a bomb threat.

Superintendent Rick Doll, told members of the Lawrence school board on Monday that students would need to spend another 4.81 hours — that’s 289 minutes — in school to satisfy state requirements for a full year of instruction.

Doll said that Principal Ed West was still working out details and that the new schedule likely would be in place by Jan. 5.

Do they still get out of school early on Wednesdays? One or two Wednesdays would easily make up the time.

Actually at the high school level they only get out 30 minutes early on Wednesday, and then an hour early on Thursday, and usually start an hour late on Thursdays as well. But no way the "collaboration" sacred cow could ever be touched.

You are correct. The collaboration time is protected by the master agreement and is very important to teachers.

People hating on collaboration time clearly do not understand the life of a teacher.
