What Geneva Parents Need to Know about the Teacher Strike

They negotiated well past 1:30 in the morning, but no deal was done. That means the Geneva Education Association (the teachers’ union) is going on strike.

With the strike starting today, it is a bit concerning that no new talks are scheduled. Hopefully that changes as the day goes on because no one wants the kids to be at home instead of learning.

If you are affected by this, it is important to be up to date, not only on closure information, but on where both sides are at as far as negotiations are concerned.

Here’s the latest from the teacher’s union.

Here’s what the Board of Education has to say (as of Nov. 30th, the latest piece of information I can find on their website…things may have been updated since then).
