Teachers and Kamloops-Thompson School District administrators are scheduled to meet this week to discuss educators' concerns with a proposed two-week spring break.

Jason Karpuk, president of the Kamloops-Thompson Teachers' Association, said the meeting takes place Thursday and expects the union will have a position on the matter by Friday morning.

Trustees are expected to vote on whether to adopt the longer break at a meeting Jan. 13. Last month, school district Supt. Terry Sullivan told The Daily News he was waiting for feedback from the teachers' union and CUPE Local 3500.

The teachers' association has suggested there are concerns about a loss of instructional time.

If approved, the district will shorten the lunch hour to make up for lost class time.
