Officials in the Highland School district are exploring available legal options as the teacher’s strike enters its fourth day. District Superintendent Mike Sutton announced the district’s consideration of filing an unfair labor relations complaint against the teacher’s union Monday, a day after union members overwhelmingly rejected a tentative agreement to end the work stoppage.

The teacher’s union voted 140-20 against the deal, which included a one-time stipend of $750 but did not provide the pay-raise sought by union leadership. Officials on both sides say they hope to meet before the end of the week, but as of this morning, no bargaining sessions have been scheduled.
