CUYAHOGA HEIGHTS, OH (WOIO) -  The Cuyahoga Heights Board of Education and the Cuyahoga Heights Teacher's Association have come to a tentative agreement on a three-year labor contract. 

The two groups met Thursday, after meeting over the past several weeks, and were able to reach a settlement on the contract. 

The teachers had been working without a contract since school began, and teachers were threatening to strike on Oct. 21 if a settlement wasn't reached. 

"The people at the negotiating table recognized the importance of educating our students and, ultimately, that sentiment prevailed and a settlement was reached," said district Superintendent Joe Bergant. " Now the Cuyahoga Heights Schools can move forward together, and return its exclusive focus back to educating our students at the highest levels of excellence."
