The Howard County Public School System and the county’s teachers union reached a hybrid learning work agreement last week. While hybrid learning officially began in the county March 1, the school district and the Howard County Education Association have agreed on a memorandum of understanding regarding planning time and the extra work that educators sometimes do. The agreement includes an extra two and a half hours of “self-directed planning time,” most of which is on Wednesdays, and extra money for educators who volunteer to substitute, according to a March 30 email from the teachers union to its 6,000 members.
