Akron Public Schools will hold online classes if teachers strike

Akron Public schools is poised to provide online instruction for students to learn at their homes if Akron teachers strike in January.

Teachers and other licensed professionals who are members of the Akron Education Association union have threatened to strike at 12:01 a.m. Jan. 9. 

Classes are set to resume Jan. 6 after the winter break, so it is possible students will return to school Friday, only to have teachers strike the following Monday. 

The Akron school board approved resolutions at a special meeting Thursday night in response to the Akron teachers union earlier in the day issuing a 10-day notice of its intent to strike. State law requires public employees to give a 10-day strike notice to the State Employee Relations Board before a work stoppage.
