(CUSD and ACT reach a tentative agreement)...It was reached in the early morning hours on Wednesday.

It was the culmination of a full fact finding hearing and marathon negotiations that began on May 10th between the Calexico Unified School District and the Association of Calexico Teachers. They say the tentative agreement resolves six years, past and future years, of unfinished bargaining between the entities. They say there will be no negotiations next year. The tentative agreement covers salary increases, Medical benefits and some miscellaneous items. The tentative agreement still needs to be ratified by the Teachers Associations.
