The Edwardsville School Board approved a new contract with teachers tonight, ending talk of a potential strike. 

The new, two year deal gives teachers assurances that the district will take action if class sizes get too large, which was a key sticking point in the previous contract offer. 

And even though teacher pay is frozen for this year, teacher’s union president Dave Boedeker said he’s happy with the compromise.
