Striking teachers and school boards in the Rutland Southwest Supervisory Union are expected to head back to the negotiating table today. Both sides have agreed to resume talks.
The teachers are entering their seventh day of a strike, with five schools closed.
Negotiations between the teachers and boards of the Union broke down last week over work rules, such as the time teachers spend with students.
The teachers’ union says the teachers have been without a contract for 645 days, the longest such stretch in Vermont.
The district is made up of the towns of Ira, Middletown Springs, Poultney, Tinmouth and Wells.
