Classes have resumed at Marcus Garvey Technical High School in St Ann’s Bay following a sit-in by teachers on Tuesday.
The teachers were protesting in support of a colleague, whose pay was docked for her absence from work from September 3 to 18.
It is reported that the teacher refused to take up her assignment at the school’s new campus in Ocho Rios as was instructed by the school administration.
On Wednesday, in a meeting involving Maxine Headlam, director for the Ministry of Education Region Three, a solution was reached that has seen a return to normality at the institution.
It is reported that the ministry allowed the teacher’s full salary to be paid to her despite her absence from work.
When The Gleaner tried to reach Headlam for comments, a spokesperson from her office said she was not in.
Efforts to get a comment from acting chief education officer, Clement Radcliffe, also proved futile, as the phones at his office rang without answer.
