SPRINGBORO, Ohio (WDTN) - "We all have this common goal of saving our schools and saving our community," says Lynn Greenberg.
She has five children in the Springboro City School District.
Greenberg made car magnets in support of the teachers, as the Springboro Education Association, continues contract negotiations with the district.
"They're part of our community. They're parents, they're friends, they're neighbors," explains Greenberg.
Back in May the SEA voted to allow its negotiation team to file a ten day strike notice if no deal is reached.
But the SEA tells us that it will continue to bargain in good faith through the end of summer.
Board's president Kelly Kohls tells 2 NEWS that she can't comment on negotiations but she confirms that the district is taking steps to make sure it has replacement teachers if the SEA decides to strike.
Parents like Greenberg wore red to Thursday night's board meeting to show they don't want that.
"I hope the red shows that we want them to avoid any action of a strike. We don't want that, our teachers don't want that, none of us want that. WE want our money kept in our district, with our kids, not spent on some out of state firm or strike group that's going to spend a lot of money for nothing," comments Greenberg.
Stephanie Bindemann says if the teachers' strike, she won't send her kids to school.
"I'm very concerned. We moved to Springboro for a high performing school. I have high-performing boys and they are willing to take all that and they are willing to just throw that away. They need to come to the negotiating table ready to listen to the teachers," says Bindemann.
No date has been set for the next negotiation session between the teachers' union and the district.
