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. Because the agreement relies on private money that could be pulled under certain conditions, D.C.'s Chief Financial Officer Natwar Gandhi said the city had to make sure it had enough money to fund the deal itself.

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.
