The Jeff Tech Joint Operating Committee (JOC) held a hearing prior to its regular meeting regarding the employment status of Protective Services instructor Troy Conrad on Monday.

Conrad was demoted to part-time by the Jeff Tech administration when it was announced that the shop he teaches, Protective Services, was going to close and that it would become a part-time course in the 2016-2017 school year.

The Jeff Tech administration scheduled a hearing for May 17, 2016, which was recessed due to the fact that Conrad didn't have an attorney at the time.
