Deal reached to end Minneapolis teachers strike; classes set to resume Monday
The Minneapolis Public Schools and its teachers union say they’ve reached a tentative contract agreement to end a strike that’s kept more than 30,000 students out of school for more than two weeks. School will resume Monday.
Ed Graff, the school system’s superintendent, told reporters Friday that while negotiations were difficult the past few weeks, “at the end of the day we were all able to come together.” He described it as a fair contract. No details were immediately available.
The district says discussions are underway about how to make up the 14 missed school days during the strike, whether by adding days to the school calendar or lengthening the school day, or some combination of both.
