If the teacher sick-out in Detroit continues Tuesday, it will not disrupt the scheduled Public School League boys and girls basketball games.
The sick-out closed nearly 60 schools Monday. Teachers are protesting teaching conditions that include overcrowded classrooms.
Alvin Ward, director of athletics for DPS, said the possibility of closed schools will not alter the district’s athletic schedule. No games were postponed last week, when there were sick-outs at Cass Tech, King and Renaissance high schools.
“All of our activities are after school,’’ he said. “We pay for community use to play after school. We haven’t been affected yet because it doesn’t include the custodians and engineers that are working after school. It’s strictly instructional staff with the DPS.’’
