Harmony in Warwickshire
Advice sent by Warwickshire to all its schools suggests the time could be "returned" to the teacher by employing supply staff to cover the teachers' lesons or by making alternative arrangements for administrative duties.
The scheme was introduced in the county two weeks ago as part of a wider recruitment and retention strategy which includes measures to persuade former teachers to return to the profession.
Eric Wood, Warwickshire's county education officer, said: "Ballots (over no-cover action) are taking place all over the country but there is no point in throwing up the barricades when you can walk over the bridge together."
"It is really a recognition of the tremendous efforts teachers have made to keep schools in this area open," said Mr Wood.
