State Rep. Jeff Crossman (D-Parma) today issued a statement following reports that teachers at the Summit Academy Parma reached a deal with school administrators to end the ongoing teacher strike at the school.


“I was extremely pleased to learn that the students of Summit Academy Parma will be back in their classrooms with their teachers on Monday. At the outset, it was important to remember that we must all strive to do what is best for our students, and I commend both parties for reaching a resolution to this unfortunate dispute,” said Crossman.   


“I am hopeful that the compromise reached will enable educators to better serve their students while maintaining the viability of a school that addresses specific needs for these students.  


“I am also optimistic that, with continued, productive dialogue, future disputes will be resolved without the need to strike and that the parties will continue to strive for a better classroom experience for both students and those dedicated to their education.”
