After 21 hours of negotiations, the El Centro Elementary Teachers' Association and the El Centro Elementary School District reached a tentative agreement in contract negotiations at 6 this morning.
"Both parties have agreed not to publicly disclose the details of that agreement until we have the opportunity to meet with our respective units to review it with them," said district Superintendent Michael Klentschy.
Bruce Roberts, president of the ECETA, said members will meet Monday afternoon to vote to ratify the agreement.
"We hope to have the information into the teachers' hands by Monday morning," said Roberts.
He anticipated the association will ratify the agreement.
"I feel comfortable and confident that it will probably happen," he said.
"Having gone this long, and people have been looking forward to this, I think they almost can't believe it's finally happening," said Roberts.
Roberts added the tentative agreement is for contracts for last year, this year and next year.
