TEACHER PLANNING VETO
W.Va. governor vetoes bill providing teachers freedom during planning periods

Reported by: Associated Press
Wednesday, April 2, 2014 11:10 AM EDT
CHARLESTON, W.Va.


Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin has vetoed a bill that would have given teachers more freedom in using daily planning periods.

The proposal would have generally prohibited administrators from making teachers attend training, work-related events, parent-teacher conferences, individualized education program meetings or teacher evaluation conferences during planning periods. The bill says teachers could have done so voluntarily.

Tomblin said in a veto letter that the bill would have prevented teachers and principals from collaboratively planning their instructional days.

Tomblin also said the bill would have imposed more costs on county school boards.

State lawmakers overwhelmingly approved the legislation.
