MEDFORD, Ore. -- Teachers in the Medford School District have gone back to their classrooms after a strike.

The school district and teachers said Friday they'd agreed on a contract. Details weren't immediately announced. A union ratification vote will be held as soon as Thursday..

The Medford Mail Tribune reported teachers went to work from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday to reorganize their classrooms and put lesson plans in order so they could hit the ground running Monday, the first day back with students.

The district operated on half-day schedules during the strike, with substitutes in the classrooms and many students staying home. School Board member Sally Killen said there is no plan for school days to be added to make up for the time lost.
