Teachers in a Montgomery County school district have given notice that they intend to strike next week if no deal is reached this weekend.

The Perkiomen Valley Education Association issued the 48-hour strike notice on Friday. That would mean a strike could begin on Tuesday.

The teachers' union and school administrators are meeting with a state mediator over the next few days at an undisclosed location.

The teachers have been without a new contract since June 30th.

The union said it is hoping for a "fair and reasonable" settlement.
