WICHITA, Kan. (AP) -- The Wichita School District and its teachers union have declared an impasse in contract talks following a heated negotiation session that district officials called adversarial.

The Wichita Eagle (http://bit.ly/NfUty7 ) reports the district will seek federal mediation to settle the contract dispute with its 4,000 teachers after talks broke down Wednesday.

Negotiations began in March on a new contract to take effect in August. Major sticking points have included teacher evaluations, lesson plans, dress codes and classroom discipline.

A lawyer for the district, Tom Powell, says the union started the negotiations on a negative note by insisting on recording the talks.
