A tentative agreement was reached early Sunday morning between Seattle Education Association and Seattle Public Schools.
While no details of the agreement have been released, teachers plan to review and vote on the agreement Tuesday at the SEA general membershp meeting at Benaroya Hall. School is scheduled to begin Wednesday.
The agreement came after the teachers and administrators employed the help of a mediator from the Pacific Employment Relations Commission on Saturday.
The issues under debate included how to use test scores in evaluating teachers and whether to add 30 minutes to elementary teachers' official workday.
The SEA Board plans to meet Monday at 3 p.m. to discuss the settlement. Registration at the SEA general membership meeting at Benaroya Hall starts at 4 p.m. Tuesday and the meeting starts at 5 p.m. Find more details about the meeting on the SEA website.
If for some reason teachers vote down the contract and school is delayed, the City of Seattle will open 20 community centers to provide free drop-in activities for some public school students in the event of a school strike. More information on the City of Seattle website.
