The superintendent of Denver schools says talks over a pay dispute that led to a teacher strike will resume Tuesday.

Susana Cordova said she saw a range of effects at schools when teachers went on strike Monday.

Schools remained open Monday and district officials have said administrators and substitute teachers will staff them.

Cordova said students at schools she visited were working in classrooms, overseen by adults. She acknowledged reports of students dancing and chanting in the hallways of one high school before walking out.

She said district officials reported that the school was calm by early afternoon.

Cordova says the district will review that plan for individual schools each day. She says she is hopeful the district and teachers union can come to an agreement quickly.
