More than 97 percent of union members approved the deal. The agreement will take effect after a Denver Public Schools board vote.
When Denver educators voted to strike, math teacher Kathleen Braun was on picket line. That was in 1969. And again in 1994. And, yes, last week.
A marathon bargaining session that lasted nearly 24 hours brought the three-day teacher strike to an end Thursday morning.
The all-nighter, which eclipsed the record set in 1994 for the longest bargaining session, hammered out the details between teachers and the district.
The talks on teacher pay began at 10 a.m. and are scheduled to last until 8 p.m.
Denver Public Schools and the teachers union will restart negotiations at 10 a.m. Tuesday.
Thousands of teachers did not report to schools Monday, instead protesting along picket lines and rallying at the state Capitol.
The strike will affect 71,000 students across 147 schools, and 5,353 teachers and specialized service providers.
DPS has said more than half of teachers surveyed in high priority schools said an incentive influenced their decision to stay.
Gov. Jared Polis is still encouraging teachers and Denver Public Schools to restart negotiations to avoid the strike.
