CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - The West Virginia Senate is revisiting Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin's proposed changes to the school calendar and teacher hiring and transfers.
 
Senators held off voting on the governor's bill Friday while seeking to address concerns about those changes from groups representing teachers and school workers.
 
A vote could come Monday as lawmakers, Tomblin administration officials and representatives of these groups discuss a possible amendment.
 
Tomblin seeks to rewrite teacher hiring and transfer policies. He's also proposed freeing up more days for student instruction on the school calendar.
 
One part of the bill would allow the nonprofit Teach for America into West Virginia classrooms for the first time
 
The employee organizations object to all of those provisions.
