MOON (KDKA) – Teachers and students in the Moon Area School District will head back to the classroom Monday morning.

On Wednesday, the teachers announced they were ending their three-week strike after district officials agreed to have a third party continue the negotiations.

Teachers’ union officials and district negotiators said the main issues included higher compensation, teacher contribution to health care insurance and the length of the school day.

Union officials said they understand how tough it is for residents to pay higher taxes, but they want Moon teachers to be on par with other teachers in more affluent school districts. As a result, it could mean four percent annual pay-raises.
