Portland Public Schools and its teachers’ union are going in for another negotiation round today as the clock ticks down to a strike. They were supposed to meet Sunday, but all the snow and ice forced a cancellation.
Meanwhile, The Oregonian reports we now have a better idea what the school district plans to do if the Portland Association of Teachers walks out. The paper has appealed the district’s refusal to honor a public records request, and the Multnomah County District Attorney’s Office is ruling on that appeal today.
But the district outed its preliminary plans in a frequently-asked-questions piece on its website. Should teachers walk out on February 20th, the district will close all schools for three days. After that, it will focus on re-opening elementary and middle schools first.
