Even after two days of protest that closed 20 schools, classified staff at Durham Public Schools are still looking for answers.

The school board is set to vote on how to address the error that led to the abrupt end of raises this week.

Due South has made several requests for an interview with a DPS representative, including Superintendent Mubenga. That invitation is open.
