Negotiators for the School Board and more than 500 members of the Harlem Federation of Teachers failed to reach a contract agreement Sunday.
The district serves the northern Illinois communities of Loves Park, Machesney Park and southern Roscoe.
Teachers had asked for a three-year deal, but the district would only offer a one-year pact.
Negotiators are expected to return to the bargaining table later Monday.
