District 46 teachers strike ends

A teachers strike is over in far north suburban Lake County after District 46 officials and teachers reached a tentative agreement early Monday. Classes will resume Tuesday.

Sunday, about 20 residents attended a public meeting to address the strike in school District 46, which serves seven communities, including Grayslake and Lake Villa.

Dozens more rallied to support the teachers who walked off the job Wednesday.

Both sides say they look forward to welcoming students back to school Tuesday, after Monday's Martin Luther King Jr. holiday.
