StrikeWatch: School Consolidations

teachers strike 1MEDFORD, Ore. — If the negotiating teams don’t reach a resolution by Tuesday, the complicated district plan of school closures and rotating half days begins.

Six elementary schools and both middle schools will shut down until the strike is over. Students from the closed schools get bussed to other schools. They will attend class in either morning or afternoon. District parents should have received a letter explaining where their children will attend.

Students from Abraham Lincoln Elementary go to Kennedy Elementary.

Jacksonville Elementary students head to Griffin Creek Elementary.

The Jefferson Elementary student body combines with Hoover Elementary’s, then Oakgrove kids go to with Howard Elementary.

Roosevelt Elementary head to Jackson Elementary. Wilson Elementary students will take classes at Lone Pine.

Hendrick Middle School students will be heading to North Medford High School.

McLoughlin Middle School students will go to South Medford High School.

Each of the open schools will have morning or afternoon sessions. School officials say several schools will serve breakfast before the start of class time.

    It’s suppose to be about the kids, not the teachers bottom line.These teachers are making w benefits n bonus’s on the average of 100k a yr here in the valley. But they want more benefits and money. All the while our kids are graduating w out a basic education. They have a diploma but still can’t do eighth grade algebra or spell for the most part. The school system in the USA is broken. Sadly the USA is amongst the dumbest in the world..the most powerful country in the world has some of the dumbest people. What’s wrong w this scenario?
    Get rid of tenure and hold teachers accountable for their failing students. In any other profession you get fired for failing at your job, not more money and benefits.
    Why are we not protesting the teachers for NOT doing their jobs?!?! Parents! Fight for your kids to get an education worthy of 100 k a yr! Demand it! It’s your tax money paying them!
