A tentative agreement has been reached between bargaining teams of the teacher's union at Rochelle Township High School along with district officials on a new contract.
Terms of the deal will not be made public until the RTHS board ratifies the contract. They are meeting in special session next Wednesday morning at 7:30.
The union approved the contract last Wednesday. More than 60 staff members belong to the union.
Superintendent Jamie Craven said that negotiations on the new contract began late May between the bargaining teams. The teachers are currently working under a 1-year contract that terminates at the end of August.
