Duquesne schools get more time to develop financial recovery plan
Secretary of Education Ron Tomalis granted the newly-appointed financial recovery officer for the troubled Duquesne City School District more time to develop a fiscal and academic plan.
Tomalis appointed Paul Long to the position Nov. 16. Under Act 141, Long had until Dec. 16 to develop the plan for the financially distressed district, which members of the school board can accept or reject. The extension gives him until Jan. 31, 2013.
Long assembled an advisory council of community members to assist with the plan. Its first meeting is scheduled Thursday. Long will schedule four public meetings to present the plan to the public on dates not yet determined.
If the board rejects Long's plan, a receiver the Allegheny County Common Pleas Court selects will oversee the district.
