STREETSBORO, OH – The Streetsboro City School District Board of Education (“Board”) voted unanimously to authorize a strike resolution during a special meeting on Monday November 9, 2020.
The 5 – 0 vote authorizes the Superintendent to employ substitute teachers at competitive wages, to close school facilities, and to move the District’s students to remote instruction if deemed necessary in response to the threatened strikes by the District’s teachers’ union (“SEA”) and non-teachers’ union (“SSSPA”).
“The Board’s vote shows that its members are united in their decision to continue providing an education to the District’s students during a strike,” said Superintendent Mike Daulbaugh.
“It is the goal of the Board to continue providing the required education for all students, along with athletic opportunities as feasible, should a strike occur”, he added.
The Board has offered to schedule new bargaining dates through a Federal Mediator, in an effort to resolve the collective bargaining agreements and avoid a strike. At this time, no future bargaining session has been established.
