Massac County teachers and school board have tentative agreement

It looks like we don't have to worry about a teacher strike in Massac County.

The board of education and the teacher's union have reached a tentative contract agreement.

The teachers will vote on the contract later today and the board will vote at a meeting on August 24.

We don't know all the details, but over the summer the two sides were having problems agreeing on insurance issues, comp time, bereavement leave, and salary.
