Thousands of Chicago Public School teachers are rallying outside the school board headquarters in the Loop. They are on Clark Street between Madison and Adams.

The teachers walked off the job Monday morning after months of negotiations failed to resolve a contract dispute with CPS officials by the midnight deadline.

Negotiations continue between CPS and CTU officials at Jackson and Wacker.
