Strikes and other forms of job action are prohibited by RSA 273-A:13 and are a violation of Board policy. However, if a work stoppage occurs, the Board will keep schools open so long as the health and safety of the students and employees can be assured.

Action Regarding Work Stoppage
The initial decision as to whether or not school will remain open will be made by the Superintendent in consultation with the Chairperson of the Board. If this consultation is not possible, the Superintendent is authorized to make the decision.

There will be an emergency meeting of the Board during the evening the work stoppage has occurred. If prior warning of a possible stoppage is forthcoming, the Superintendent is authorized to call an emergency school board meeting to be held in the usual meeting place at a designated time and date.

It is expressly understood that no board member other than the Chairperson or designee will issue any press release or statements in regard to the work stoppage.
