    SOUTH BURLINGTON - The school board and teachers in the Vermont city of South Burlington are hoping a mediator can help them reach an agreement on a new contract.

    Negotiations have been under way since November and a mediator from Boston met with both parties May 15 but was unable to resolve an impasse in negotiations.

    A fact-finding report is due mid-summer.

    The Burlington Free Press reported neither side is willing to discuss the details of the negotiations.

    The current contract expires June 30 but it includes a clause extending the terms of the contract if no new agreement has been reached.

    The starting salary for South Burlington teachers is just over $41,000 with a maximum salary of $85,382.
