MEDFORD, Ore. (AP) — The Medford School District may have to adjust the school calendar if a teachers strike continues after this week.
Secondary education director Todd Bloomquist also told the Mail Tribune (http://bit.ly/MeuGuj ) the district may have to reevaluate high school graduations dates set for June.
Teachers went on strike Feb. 6, and classes resumed Feb. 11 on a half-day schedule with substitutes.
Negotiations continue with the Medford Education Association. Issues include contract length, health insurance, cost of living raises and early retirement incentives.
Medford has Oregon's eighth-largest district with 13,500 students and 600 union teachers.
