The Duquesne City School Board on Thursday approved the appointment of Paul Long as the chief recovery officer for the financially strapped school district.

Education Secretary Ron Tomalis appointed Long, 63, to the position on Nov. 16. Under Act 141, Long has until Dec. 16 to develop a fiscal and academic plan for the district, which members of the school board can accept or reject. The board will make a decision on his plan at a meeting scheduled for Dec. 30. Tomalis can approve extensions for both those deadlines, if necessary.

In a presentation to the board, Long explained he will spend the next few weeks collecting data and meeting with community members. He plans to form a 15- to 20-member advisory council and encouraged anyone interested to contact him at paulblongcro@comcast.net.

If the board rejects Long's plan, a receiver selected by Allegheny County Common Pleas Court will oversee the district.
