How Ashland schools responded to teacher requests for more time

There may be a lot of joy in educating students, but there's a lot of work, too. And that work has only increased with the pandemic, and the tricky business of holding school online or in-person but distanced.

Teachers have been asking for additional time to rest or prepare lessons, or both, in several districts.

Ashland School District responded with a school board vote to provide two wellness/relief days and three more planning days, starting with what would have been the first instruction day of the new year.

Assistant Superintendent Erika Bare joins us with details of the request and its fulfillment.
