‘Tentative agreement’ reached by Sycamore teachers’ union, school district for labor contract

Before the Sycamore School District 427 school board meeting Tuesday, Feb. 8, 2022, a sign in the front row of the packed auditorium at Sycamore High School reflects the amount of days Sycamore teachers have been working without a contract. The meeting never began however after board president Jim Dombeck told the largely masked crowd that the meeting would be switched to a virtual format after saying several maskless individuals refused to comply with districts instruction to wear a face covering.
