MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The Minneapolis school district and its teachers’ union have reached a tentative contract agreement.

The district and the Minneapolis Federation of Teachers say they reached the deal Saturday after what they said were “three consecutive days of productive talks.” Negotiations had begun last June.

The union and district say details won’t be released until they’re shared with rank-and-file teachers and the school board. A contract vote is expected in mid-April. The pact will cover the current and the 2015-15 school years.

Minneapolis is the third-largest school district in Minnesota.

St. Paul teachers reached a tentative agreement last month, but not before scheduling a strike vote. Teachers in the state’s largest district, Anoka-Hennepin, are also negotiating a contract. Last week their union backed off a threat to hold a strike vote.
