massive layoffs and big cuts. doctor hite is hoping this contract deal will provide the stability necessary to move the district forward to keep teachers here, recruit new talented teachers and staff members and improve the overall educational climate for the children. we talked to some parents on friday who say they are impressed that the teachers and staff stuck it out this long and they see this tentative agreement as a positive, yet necessary step, in the process. superintendent hite feels the same way. >> if in fact this becomes ratified and then later approved by src, then the one thing that this provides for us is that we didn't have before is stability. stability means we have teachers who are not looking to go other places, stability means we can focus intently on improving teaching and learning, stability means that we can ensure that the climate in our schools is conducive to
great learning. >> reporter: tentative agreement was presented to roughly 12,000 union members over the weekend, once approved, members of the union tell us that the contract terms will be in effect through august of 2020. so that vote happened, tonight at 6:00. back to you guys. >> jenny, thank you. 4:10. big news in the cosby case over weekend, we could possibly learn the names of the jurors who could not reach a verdict in the assault case against bill cosby because it has been challenge. the judge sealed their names on saturday but numerous news outlets have asked for the judge to reconsider over the weekend the jury came back dead locked, resulting in a mistrial. cosby was charged with three felony counts of aggravated indecent assault stemming from andrea constand's allegations that he drugged and violated her at his home back in 2004. he is free, on a million-dollar bail. mike jerrick caught up with famed attorney gloria allred this weekend in the pride
