SOUTH BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) - Striking South Burlington teachers and the school board will head back to the negotiating table after failing to reach an agreement after more than 11 hours of contract talks.

The Burlington Free Press reports (https://bfpne.ws/1yJ7fzc ) that talks that began on Thursday ended unsuccessfully about 1:30 a.m. Friday. Negotiations are to resume at 3 p.m.

More than 200 teachers in the district went on strike Tuesday in a dispute over pay and benefits.

The district decided Thursday to resume student activities and athletics, possibly as early as Friday.

In a statement, school Superintendent David Young said that while school days will be made up in the aftermath of a teacher strike, non-academic events will not. He says he doesn’t want the activities to be lost.
