School Resuming in Burlington, Vermont After 4-Day Teachers' Strike

School is resuming in Burlington, Vermont, after a four-day teachers' strike has ended with the announcement of a tentative contract agreement between the school board and the teachers' union.

The Burlington School Board said late Tuesday it had reached the tentative agreement with the Burlington Education Association after an eight-hour mediation session. The agreement needs to be ratified by both sides. The terms weren't disclosed.

The board said classes, after-school programs and other programs are resuming at schools and other sites in Burlington, the state's biggest city, on Wednesday.

The 400 teachers went on strike last Thursday.
