Teachers, board meet in Prospect Heights
The school board presented its final proposal to the teachers union.

PROSPECT HEIGHTS, Ill. (WLS) -- Negotiations with striking teachers in Prospect Heights resume around 6 p.m. Friday.

The teachers' union unanimously rejected what the school board called its "best and final offer." The union came back with a counter-proposal, including lower percent increases for salaries.

But so far there is no agreement.

More than 1,500 students have been out of school since the strike began last Wednesday.
