NASHUA, N.H. (AP) — The Nashua Board of Education has voted to extend school days by 14 minutes starting next month.
The board voted 6-2 to add seven minutes at the beginning of the school day and seven minutes at the end of the day. The Nashua Telegraph reports board members Howard Coffman and Doris Hohensee were both in favor of adding 14 minutes at the end instead.
Nashua Teachers’ Union President Adam Marcoux says the burden will be shared equally among every school with the seven-minute equal split.
Marcoux says all 1,600 members of his union will have to vote on the decision, as it extends work days. The union will receive the proposal Wednesday.
