Teachers and other educational professionals in West Chester have finally reached a contract deal with the school district after more than a year and a half of negotiations.

Union members approved the tentative agreement at an after-school meeting Friday.

It will need to be ratified by the school board on Monday.

The deal is retroactive to the 2012 school year, when the previous contract expired and would last until summer of 2017.
