Classes to resume Monday in Prospect Heights District 23

Prospect Heights Elementary District 23 teachers ratified a tentative four-year contract Sunday afternoon, a vote that will put an end to a seven-day strike and get students back in school Monday.

Teacher union officials declined to comment on the vote or the terms of the new deal, according to the Daily Herald. The District 23 Board of Education will meet Tuesday night, and if the board ratifies the agreement, the district and Prospect Heights Education Association will release a joint statement containing details on the agreement, according to a statement from the union.

Teachers walked out Sept. 16 after months of negotiations between the union and school board failed to reach agreement on a contract.
