The Columbus City Board of Education and the Columbus Education Association will return to the negotiating table on Wednesday.

CEA spokesperson Regina Fuentes said federal mediators have asked the parties to return to the negotiating table.

The City of Columbus Schools confirmed in an email that all parties have been asked to meet on Wednesday.

“As the Board has stated, they will continue to work on these negotiations committed to resolution under the guidance of a federal mediator,” district spokesperson Jacqueline Bryant said in an email. “We remain focused on starting school on August 24th with our teachers, but we are gearing up for a different outcome. I will share it with the larger community.”
