Sources tell WAMU that D.C.’s chief financial officer will certify the tentative teacher’s agreement.

The agreement between the Washington Teacher’s Union and the school system had been held up over funding questions.

Now it appears the city has identified those sources of funding.

The contract must still be ratified by the union and approved by the D.C. Council.
