Administrators in contract talks with striking teachers in southwest Vermont say canceled school days will be made up, possibly during the February and April vacations.

Thursday marked the seventh day teachers have been on strike. The boards of the Southwest Vermont Supervisory Union posted the message about making up days on its website. It said the school vacation periods "are under serious consideration."

Talks were scheduled to resume Thursday morning. The union representing about 300 teachers said Wednesday’s contract talks showed progress on many issues.

The issues up for discussion include salaries, health insurance and time spent with students.
