The Latest on the Denver teachers strike (all times local):

8:20 a.m.

Denver teachers are back on the picket lines as union and school officials resume negotiations try to end a teacher strike over pay.

Talks are scheduled to resume at 10 a.m. Tuesday for the first time since talks broke down over the weekend.

The strike started Monday and all schools were open Tuesday. They are staffed by administrators, substitutes and teachers not participating in the strike.

The school district says preliminary reports show 58 percent of teachers stayed out of district-run schools on Tuesday, slightly more than on the first day of the strike Monday.

There are 71,000 students in district-run schools.

Another 21,000 are enrolled in charter schools unaffected by the strike.

Denver school leaders and teachers are set to resume negotiations to end a strike over pay.

Negotiations planned for Tuesday come amid a swell of educator activism that has affected at least half a dozen states over the past year.

The strike affecting about 71,000 Denver students started Monday after a round of last-minute talks broke down over the weekend.

It comes about a year after West Virginia teachers launched the national “Red4Ed” movement with a nine-day strike in which they won 5 percent pay raises. Los Angeles teachers went on strike last month.

The two sides in Denver disagree on pay increases and bonuses for teachers in high-poverty schools and other schools the district prioritizes. Teachers want lower bonuses to free up money for better overall salaries.
