The Chicago teachers’ strike has been suspended and that means the 19 Chicago high school football teams that qualified for the Illinois High School Association high school football playoffs will be able to participate in Saturday’s first round of the Illinois High School Association state playoffs.

On Wednesday, the school board approved allowing teams to practice, which helped the schools meet an IHSA requirement that tams practice for three days before it can complete.
