Public schools to stay closed Monday as teacher strike continues


Joe White (WV School Service Personnel Association)


All of West Virginia’s public schools will be closed again Monday, the third day of a statewide teacher strike.

As of 6:30 p.m. Sunday, school districts in all 55 counties had canceled classes, according to the state Department of Education’s website.

In Kanawha County, all 261-day employees, including administrative staff and custodians, were asked to report.

Joe White, executive director of the West Virginia School Services Personnel Association, said that likely will not happen in any of the school districts. White’s union represents non-teaching positions including custodians, cooks, aides, bus drivers, maintenance workers and secretaries. White said he doesn’t expect them to work Monday.
