The strike continues in Dixon today as teachers and the school board didn't see eye to eye yet again.
"I think your as perplexed as we are so that's all I can really say once again no resolution so that's very very unfortunate," said Dixon Education Association spokesman Dolph Ricks.
After negotiating for hours Monday the two sides met for another marathon session last night, breaking at 1:30 in the morning still far from a deal.
The district has offered a 1 percent pay hike while asking teachers to contribute more to health care, teachers want a 3.75 percent raise, new text books and smaller class sizes.
The district says money is still the biggest roadblock.
"The dollars are still the big thing and with the dollars comes the staffing so those are the large issues," said Dixon Superintendent Michael Juenger.
The one thing both sides do agree on is getting this issue solved quickly.
Both sides will meet for the first time in the same room today at 10:00AM.
