Striking teachers and school boards in southwest Vermont hope to meet again to resume contract negotiations as students go for a fourth day without school.
Both sides hope to meet today. They agreed to suspend negotiations for the weekend after meeting for more than 45 hours in three days last week.
The union representing 270 teachers said Friday that both sides believe that a framework for discussion has been established.
The issues up for discussion include salaries, health insurance and time spent with students.
