LITTLE ROCK, Ark. — The Little Rock School District has decided to delay action against LREA members who didn’t come to school Monday.
You can read their letter below:
We appreciate the efforts of all of the teachers who showed up yesterday and the fact that learning continued for our students. Well over 90% of our teachers were present and demonstrated their commitment to the students and parents of this community. These are challenging times as we deal with COVID-19 but our focus remains to support all students to help them achieve success. We know that our community, families, and the majority of our staff want us to all work together to impact the learning of LRSD students in both the virtual and in-person settings.
We were made aware that the Little Rock Education Association (LREA) withdrew its job action for members to not report to schools to handle in-person learning. The announcement came very late and we are still gathering information. We will delay the delivery of pending disciplinary action today for the 69 employees who participated in job action and those will be handled as individual personnel matters.
