What are you teaching? If it were me I would focus on a skill or process and scrap the project. Or do something small, that when it is all is put together makes a collaborative project.

Smaller/shorter projects. I get 45mins. But have the same problem if a project takes more than a month (actually just 4 classe periods) I usually scrap it because both the students and I are over before they finish. Projects that have definitive chunks are a good alternative if you want something longer.
Additionally, you could try some free choice. Take one class to instruct and practice a skill and then one or two for students to design a create something using that skill. (Caveat I'm trying this with 6th grade and it definitely takes some time to workout your system)

I did, I quit.

… into increments?

The problem is that kids really want ‘something to take home’ so do parents
It’s hard but finding a balance between small projects skill building and not much time for either. Pare down skills to minimize instructional time- they forget stuff week to week! Far from ideal because normally you’d prob want them working big ! And small is hard for younger ones who’s fine miter isn’t developed Seek help from the teachers,parents in your community so they can support requests for more time

I am contracted with a client that I really enjoy working with. I have expressed wanting to join full time as a HR manager and they like the idea. However they haven't made any moves. How do I convince them that the scope of work is worth a full time HR manager. And how much should I ask in Salary.

This way, no contact and I can easily see who has and hasn't turned in their projects yet. I take the list down once they remember their number.
