The Duquesne City teachers strike — scheduled for today — has been canceled.

Teachers cited “lack of proper and responsible supervision” in a press release tonight for the more than 350 students who would have been supervised by district administrators as the reason for calling off the strike.

The strike was announced after district receiver Paul Long would not commit to an arbitration to settle the district’s ongoing contract dispute. Teachers’ raises being tied to an increase in student achievement was a major point of contention. The previous contract expired in June 2012.
