The stalemate between the South Butler School District and its teachers is over. The teacher's voted on Wednesday to accept the contract issued earlier this month by a three-person non-binding arbitration panel, according to UniServ negotiator Brooke Witt, who represented the teachers in contract negotiations.

School board members voted to approve the contract one week ago.

The teachers worked for four years under their old contract, which expired in June of 2014.

A full story will be available in tomorrow's Butler Eagle.
