STRONGSVILLE -- Monday afternoon, Strongsville Education Association spokeswoman Tracy Linscott reiterated what the teachers offered the school board on Sunday.

Linscott said the board rejected the union's latest offer, described as a one-time proposal.

SEA said their offer included no pay raises and agreed to the insurance concessions the district proposed last week. The offer also included an extra 30 minutes of teaching time added to the school day.

Union officials estimate those offers combine to save the district approximately $3 million per year. School board officials did not comment.

No new meeting has been set.

Teachers returned to the picket line Monday morning after a nearly 11-hour negotiating session Sunday ended without a deal.

The SEA and Strongsville school board walked away from the bargaining table with a federal mediator shortly before 11:30 p.m.

The strike is now in its eighth week.
