BREAKING NEWS: Wadsworth strike averted

WADSWORTH — The Wadsworth Education Association and the Board of Education have reached a tentative agreement, averting a strike.

Details will be forthcoming after the association holds its ratification meeting, Superintendent Dale Fortner said in an e-mail.
In the meantime, he said, the association will be dismissing its strike notice.

The Wadsworth Education Association, which represents 285 teachers, issued a 10-day strike notice to the school board Nov. 12.

Both parties are happy to return our focus to the business of educating our students and maintaining our academic, arts and athletic excellence, Fortner said.
