Teacher strikes could be coming to an end

The Tukwila School District and the Tukwila Education Association came to a tentative agreement about teacher salaries.

Teacher strikes in the Tukwila School District might be coming to an end.

A possible agreement has been reached by the school district and the Tukwila Education Association (TEA), a press release from the district said late Friday evening.

There will be a board meeting held at Foster High School Performing Art Center on Saturday where the TEA will decide to ratify the tentative agreement or not, the release continued.

If ratified, the board will have to approve the agreement. Once that is sorted out, details about the first day of school will be discussed.

“Our negotiation team worked around the clock over the past few days and even an immeasurable amount of days and hours before that making sure we were going to have a workable plan that will benefit our students, and the district as a whole,” Rhonda Lee, communications officer at the Tukwila School District, said in the release.

More details to come as it becomes available.
