Teachers with the Oakland Education Association have called an end to its strike, with normal school operations to resume Tuesday, the union said in a statement Monday morning.
The union and school district leaders with the Oakland Unified School District reached a tentative agreement Sunday night, but could not finalize the language by an 11 p.m. deadline set by the union to resume operations on Monday.
Schools will be open on Monday, but it is unclear how many staff and teachers will be present. Union leaders said in a statement that some teachers might choose to be in classrooms but are not required to report until Tuesday.
Monday marked the eighth day of missed classes as teachers bargained for wages and working conditions.
