School-bus drivers in Cleveland ended their 19-day strike last week by agreeing to defer negotiations on the school board's authority to subcontract with a private firm for transportation service.

The agreement, ratified by the drivers' union last Tuesday, calls for retaining old contract language prohibiting subcontracting. But if the union and the board reach an im-passe in future negotiations on the issue, the agreement gives the board the right to enter into a contract with a private vendor 30 days after notifying the union.

Superintendent Frederick D. Holliday said he would seek $600,000 to operate summer-school programs in basic skills for elementary-school students who missed school because of the strike.
