DANVILLE, Pa. (AP) - Parents, students and others say they’re hoping for a resolution of the teacher strike that began this week in the Danville Area School District.

The Daily Item of Sunbury reported Saturday (https://bit.ly/1jjxSym ) that some 200 teachers walked off the job Thursday, and classes have been canceled for next week.

The paper says teachers plan to resume picketing at all four schools starting Tuesday, when classes would normally start back up after spring break.

Members of the Danville Education Association have been working without a contract for nearly two years.

The school board president says the graduation date of June 6 could be changed, depending on how long the strike lasts.

No bargaining sessions are currently scheduled.
