STRONGSVILLE, Ohio (WDTN) - The Strongsville Board of Education approved a new contract for striking teachers Sunday, April 28.
According to the Cleveland Plain dealer, the walk out was primarily over salary and working conditions in the district of about 6,200 students.
Contract provisions include restoring raises frozen in the 2011-2012 school year and teachers agreeing to pay more of their health insurance.
The president of the teachers union said its 383 members overwhelmingly ratified the contract.
According to the board president, the stalemate was helped greatly when the district received $3.2 million in unanticipated funds from delinquent real estate and general tax collections.
Students will have the day off as striking teachers transition back in to their classrooms with help from the substitute teachers.
