Strongsville City School District classes returning to normal after teachers' strike

STRONGSVILLE, Ohio - Strongsville schools returned to normal Tuesday as teachers went back to their classrooms with their students.

"It was a good first day back," said Strongsville Education Association president Tracy Linscott, who is teacher at Strongsville High School. "The kids were very excited to have us back. The teachers were excited to be back."

Strongsville teachers were on strike for eight weeks in a contract dispute with the school board.  A new contract was ratified over the weekend.

Superintendent John Krupinski confirmed that an investigation is being conducted into allegations that the room of a teacher who crossed the picket line was "trashed." Linscott said there's no truth to those allegations.
