FERNDALE, Wash. - A tentative agreement has been reached between striking teachers and the Ferndale School District.
The Ferndale Education Association announced the agreement in a news release early Saturday morning.
Details of the agreement - accepted unanimously, 240-0 - have not been revealed.
Teachers went on strike Wednesday, the day school was supposed to start for about 4,800 students and 300 teachers.
The Ferndale Education Association president, Tracie Morris, has said the main sticking point in the talks was more planning time for teachers: an average of 30 minutes a day instead of 24.
School will begin Tuesday. Monday will count as a teacher inservice day.
The district says athletic team practices and games will be held as previously scheduled.
