Information for Parents About A Possible Teacher Strike

To Parent of students enrolled in a Medford school, The Medford School Board and the Medford Education Association are negotiating a new contract for teachers. Unfortunately, the talks have not produced a final agreement, and the association’s leaders have called a strike for February 6. What This Means For Parents & Students For the time being, schools are operating normally. So are all before- and after-school activities. If the association went on strike, some regular teachers would not report for work. Other school employees, including classroom assistants, are not covered by the teacher contract and would continue to work. The School District is developing a plan to continue providing educational services to students in the event of a strike. Parents will receive timely information about the plan. Stay Informed Please make sure that you have current contact information on file in the school office. The School District will use phone calls, e-mail and other means to contact parents about plans for schools if there is a strike. The District also will post updates on its website, www.medford.k12.or.us. Click on the “Subscribe” button to receive updates automatically as they are posted. Our Commitment To Parents Our School District always strives to provide a safe, engaging learning environment for students. That commitment will not change if teachers go on strike. Thank you for your patience and understanding during this difficult time. Sincerely, Phil Long, Superintendent
