Unionized teachers at Summit Academy in Parma have approved a new contract with Summit Academy Management.
The settlement ended an 8-day strike—the first such walkout at a charter school in Ohio.
Intervention Specialist Mike Meyers was on the negotiating team.
He says during talks Thursday teachers negotiated directly with the company’s C-E-O and curriculum director and that made the difference.
Summit Management agreed to limit class sizes to 18, and have two adults in each room, which were the teachers’ main concerns.
