DELTA TWP., Mich (WLNS) – About 100 Waverly High School students left their classrooms today in a show of support for their teachers.
The marchers paraded in front of the school during their scheduled fourth hour of classes.
Teachers at the Waverly Schools have been working without a contract since June of last year.
The 175 teachers are looking to address class size, wages and benefits in a new contract.
Monday night a Waverly School Board meeting turned contentious when public comments went over the time allotted by the Board.
At that point the Board went into a closed session, raising questions of whether the Open Meetings Act had been violated by that action.
6 News crews were at today’s demonstration and will have updates to this story online and on 6 News.
