Representatives from the Lake Villa Federation of Teachers and the school board have reached a tentative contract agreement.
Lake Villa teachers and the Lake Villa 41 Board of Education still have to sign off on the agreement, which was reached Saturday. Details on the deal have not yet been made public.
The tentative agreement comes after the union announced a strike date of February 29 last week.
The two sides were in contract negotiations for the past nine months. Sticking points included pay and health care benefits, the school board previously stated. The union said it was seeking "modest raises" and classroom reforms.
