Schools to close due to strike action
Parents are being urged to make alternative childcare plans ahead of the mass closures of primary schools tomorrow, Tuesday, January 10, and of secondary schools on Wednesday, January 11.
The council is also braced for further strike action on Monday, January 30, when all schools are due to close.
The Scottish Government, however, has insisted that a 10% increase for all teachers is not affordable within its fixed budget.
This is the third time in recent months where teachers have taken action.
All Borders schools closed on Thursday, November 24, due to industrial action, with further strike action taken on Thursday, December 8.
