CLEVELAND - The Cleveland Metropolitan School District Board of Education approved a tentative agreement with the teachers' union Tuesday evening.
The district and the Cleveland Teachers Union reached the deal last week. Union members are scheduled to vote between May 28 and May 31.
"This ground-breaking agreement paves the way for shared ownership in building a high-quality education system," said union president David Quolke in a news release. "The new agreement also rewards and recognizes the hard work teachers do by aligning teacher compensation with components and practices needed to improve teaching and learning."
The conditions of the agreement were not released Tuesday night. The district said it came after months of contract talks and help from a fact finder.
