The new school year began this morning

Tukwila schools were back in session following a reached agreement between the district and its staff.

Classes resumed this morning in the Tukwila School District after a 3-day strike kept students and teachers out of the classroom.

According to a Sept. 8 press release from the district, an agreement was reached between the district and its employees.

The agreement ensured a 10 percent raise for Tukwila Education Association (TEA) and Tukwila Classified Education Association (TCEA) staff.

This agreement was reached Friday evening and was ratified Saturday. The school Board of Directors met Sunday for a final vote to approve the ratification, the release stated.

A more detailed story will be published in the September edition of the Tukwila Reporter.
