A plea today from the Government-Trustee Bargaining Committee to the Saskatchewan Teachers Federation.

They want reassurance from the teachers that final exams won't be affected by any potential work action.

School Board Association President Sandy Urban Hall says the clock is ticking.

"Students have been accepted into post secondary programs based on the fact that they need to have those final marks in. It also would impact scholarships."

Urban Hall adds without teachers, it would be nearly impossible to go ahead with exams without the teachers.

"We would be significantly challenged to the point of probably not being able to accommodate that, when you look at the number of students in the province."

Teachers are set to walk off the job Wednesday and Thursday.
