Duquesne City School District Chief Recovery Officer Paul Long said Thursday he received a verbal confirmation from the state that it extended the deadline for him to submit a five-year financial plan to the school board until Feb. 11.

The original deadline was Thursday. Long has held four public forums regarding the plan. Once completed, Long will submit it to the board. If the board rejects Long's plan, a receiver selected by Allegheny County Common Pleas Court will oversee the district.

Proposals for the future of the district include keeping the K-6 school at the Duquesne Education Center open, turning it into a charter school, or transferring students to other districts.

The district has been designated by the state as financially distressed since 2000.
