Although no details have been released by the McHenry High School District 156 Board, Make found this in the early morning hours:
Comment submitted on 2015/10/10 at 2:28 am
The McHenry High School District 156 teacher union Facebook website announced 45 minutes ago, “We have reached a Tentative Agreement with the Board of Education.”
Next step, the rank and file teachers vote whether or not to approve the agreement.
The public however does not get to vote whether or not to approve the agreement.
The law should be changed to allow the public to vote whether or not to approve the agreement.
In fact, typically in Illinois the school board does not allow the public to even see the agreement until after the school board and union lawyers have agreed upon the agreement, which is often months after the rank and file teachers vote whether or not to approve the agreement.
It is not a level playing field for voters in Illinois.
Yes we know that teachers are voters too, that’s obvious.
No notification yet of a tentative agreement on the school district website or facebook page.

At 10 AM, I found the following on the District 156 web site:
