The district presented a new offer to the teacher's union earlier Thursday morning. The sticking point had been the 5 and 2 scheduling five periods for teaching, two periods for planning.
The district wants the option to ask teachers to instruct a sixth class, but teachers say student's education would suffer. School superintendent Marshall says the new proposal addressed the sixth class. The district would first try to hire outside sources. If that fails, then they would look internally.
The teacher's union is now working on a counter-proposal.
