HAZLET - Students in Hazlet can look forward to longer classes when school starts next month.

The Hazlet Township School District has announced that it will extend elementary and middle school days by 20 minutes and high school days by 15 minutes.

The extension comes out of a collective bargaining agreement with the Hazlet Township Teachers' Association.

The district says the time added will be for instructional purposes and not for additional free or study periods.

Superintendent of Schools William George III says that the extended school day will not cost extra money. He says the teachers' union agreed to the change with just the 2-percent yearly increase that it would have gotten anyway.
