'High likelihood of an agreement today,' district official says

Negotiations between the Medford School District and its teachers union resumed at about 9:30 this morning and there's a "high likelihood of an agreement today," said an official working closely with the district.

The two sides spent nearly 15 hours bargaining Thursday and took a break around midnight, said the official, who works with the district on behalf of the Oregon School Boards Association but asked not to be named.

The district and the Medford Education Association bargaining teams went back to the table at about 9:30 a.m., he said.

Teachers entered their 11th working day of a strike that began Feb. 6.
