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.

We welcome thoughts and comments from our viewers. We ask that everyone keep their remarks civil and respectful. Postings that contain profanity, racist, or potentially libelous remarks will be deleted. We will delete any commercial postings, as well.
