“The current school board proposal does not allow us to have the time we used to have,” said Christen, adding the academic lag many students suffered during the COVID-19 disrupted school years requires teachers to spend more time on lesson and other planning.

As of mid-day Wednesday, Hamilton Schools Superintendent Mike Holbrook had not responded to requests to comment as to the district’s position on the contract talks.
