Duquesne City School District Chief Recovery Officer Paul Long said Thursday he will seek a new deadline to submit a five-year financial plan to the elected school board.

The deadline is now Jan. 31. The school board must decide whether to approve it by Feb. 10.

At the last of four public forums required as a committee develops the plan, Long said he will seek a delay beyond Gov. Tom Corbett's Feb. 5 state budget address.

Nearly 40 people attended the forum at the Duquesne Education Center, and many called for a return of “quality education” to an embattled district that was under state control for 12 years.

Long said he may propose keeping the K-6 school at the Duquesne Education Center open or turning it into a charter school. Students could also be transferred to other districts, he said.
