VANCOUER, Wash. (AP) - Teachers in the southwest Washington city of Battle Ground have reached a tentative agreement to end a teacher strike.
Classes are scheduled to begin Monday, pending a vote by the Battle Ground Education Association.
The deal reached Saturday came one day after a Clark County Superior Court judge signed an injunction ordering teachers back to work.
Bargaining units at most of the state's 295 school systems sought to renegotiate salaries this year after the state Legislature approved $1 billion for teacher pay to resolve a long-running court battle that determined the state was inadequately funding public education.
Teachers in several communities including Tacoma and Vancouver went on strike over those salary negotiations.
Teachers in Tumwater, south of Olympia, remain on strike.
