Wheaton Warrenville Unit District 200 and its teachers union have reached a tentative agreement on a three-year contract that could be wrapped up by the middle of the month, officials said in a statement released late Friday.

The Wheaton Warrenville Education Association, which represents roughly 1,000 certified teachers, is scheduled to present the tentative agreement to its membership on Sunday, with the teachers expected to take a formal vote Tuesday, district spokeswoman Erica Loiacono said in a written statement.

If the teachers ratify the contract, the school board is expected to approve it June 13.

School board President Rosemary Swanson said negotiations began shortly after the start of the new year. She said details of the pact won't be made public until after both sides have approved it.

"I'm pleased with the work everybody has put into it," she said Saturday.

Union officials could not be reached for comment.

The previous two-year contract expires this month.

The 20-school district serves more than 13,400 students in Wheaton, Warrenville and portions of Carol Stream, Winfield and West Chicago.
