The Los Angeles teachers union said it's heading back to the negotiating table with the school district.

But while teachers demand millions more dollars in school funding, their school district has lost $69 million—and counting—during the strike.

A notice was sent to schools last week asking to not use mascots depicting tribes, individuals, customs or traditions.
