MFT Negotiations

March 26 Update: 11:45 a.m.

After further discussion with MFT yesterday, we have together decided to make Monday, March 28 a transition day with staff returning to work, and Tuesday, March 29, the day that students will return to school. These plans are, of course, pending the MFT vote on the contract. The discussion yesterday revealed the very real need for teachers, ESPs and principals to have a day to ensure the best possible welcome for students. 

We understand MFT is voting on this agreement today and tomorrow. Once we are notified about the results of the vote, we will provide families with more information.

MFT and MPS are also proposing the following schedule for making up missed instructional time (pending board approval of the revised calendar):

  • Host school on Friday, April 1 – moving the currently scheduled teacher record-keeping day to another day,

  • Beginning on April 11 (after spring break), add 42 minutes to the end of each school day for the remainder of the school year,

  • Quarter 3 will end on April 21, 2022 and Quarter 4 will begin on April 22, 2022. The April 1, 2022 record keeping day will be rescheduled to Saturday, April 23, 2022, 

  • Extend the end of the school year to June 24. 

We apologize for the inconvenience of this date change for student return. As much as we all want our students back in schools, we know the right thing to do is to be fully prepared for their return. Thank you for your continued patience.
