Antelope Valley Union HSD | BP 4141.6 Personnel
Concerted Action/Work Stoppage
The Board of Trustees provides enlightened personnel practices, reasonable working conditions and competitive salary schedules for the employees of this school district and opposes the use of strikes, walkouts or withholding of services by district employees as tactics to pressure the Board to make concessions during negotiations or during the term of a collective bargaining contract.
The Board believes that school employee strikes are harmful to the public interest, are coercive in nature and deprive students of the education to which they are entitled.
It is the intent and resolve of the Board to keep the schools open during any work stoppage in the interests of the students and the public, so long as the safety and welfare of the students and the security of district property is maintained.
The Superintendent or designee is directed to develop a plan for the safe operation of the district's schools in the event of a work stoppage, and shall annually review and update this plan if necessary.
The Superintendent or designee is authorized to take whatever emergency steps are deemed necessary for the safety of students, reporting staff, and district property in the event of a strike, walk out, a coordinated, mass use of sick leave, or other concentrated refusal by staff to perform their assigned duties and services. Such steps shall be reported to the Board as soon as administratively possible.
The teaching staff is requested not to permit any discussion with students regarding a work stoppage to interfere with carrying out their regular teaching responsibilities. Questions raised by students regarding any potential work stoppage shall be dealt with in accordance with the district's controversial issue policy.
Students shall not carry any messages to parents/guardians that promote the position or carry an explanation of any employee organization that is engaged in or contemplating a work stoppage.
