STRONGSVILLE -- We now have new numbers of what the teachers' strike in Strongsville is costing the school district.

As the Strongsville Education Association requests all five board members meet for a formal negotiating session, we have some dollar amounts for the strike.

The district treasurer says Alternative Workforce, which hires the replacement teachers, was paid nearly $74, 000 through March 8.

Huffmaster, which provides security, was paid just over $77,000 through March 8.

From January 2012 through January 2013, the district paid a law firm just over $49,000 for negotiation services.

That totals nearly $200,000 just in the first week of the strike.
