FAIRPLAY, Colo. — Talks planned between striking teachers and school officials in Park County were canceled on Wednesday morning.

The South Park Education Association said the superintendent of the Park County School District RE-2, Joe Torrez, and a school board member were expected to meet with the union’s bargaining team members at 11 a.m.

But the district canceled the meeting. It did not give a reason.

Teachers went on strike Monday over wages and other issues.

District officials have offered a $2,000 raise. Teachers want a $6,000 across the board pay raise to help keep current teachers and attract new ones.

It is the third teacher strike in Colorado in the past 18 months.
