SEATTLE (AP) — Classes are canceled for another day today as the Seattle school teachers continue their strike over wages and other issues. But instead of picketing today, they'll be volunteering in honor of the 14th anniversary of the 9/11 terror attacks.
Teachers from the district's 97 schools plan community service projects like park cleanups and food drives.
Meanwhile, a Seattle Public Schools spokesman says both sides are continuing to meet with mediators, but negotiations have not resumed.
Teachers went on strike Monday, which was supposed to be the first day of school for students.
The district is offering teachers a pay increase of nearly 9 percent over three years. The teachers union has countered with a 10.5 percent increase over two years.
