Rockford schools, teachers have tentative deal

ROCKFORD – Officials of the Rockford School District say a tentative contract agreement reached with the teachers union will mean classes will resume Monday.

District administrators and leaders of the 1,850-member Rockford Education Association emerged from a bargaining session late Friday to announce the tentative four-year agreement, the details of which were not revealed. They almost immediately resumed talks to iron out details

The teachers union has called a meeting for today to consider ratification of the agreement, which also must be approved by the school board.

The two-day strike forced the cancellation of classes for 28,000 students in the north-central Illinois community. Until their tentative agreement, teachers and administrators have been working under terms of a contract that expired July 1.
