The School District of Philadelphia isn’t out of the woods yet. Despite deep cuts and help from the city, the district is still $35 million short on the state’s end.
Though some funding has been restored to schools, Philadelphia will see less than 10 percent of that — not the full $57 million it was counting on from the state.
NewsWorks partner the Public School Notebook talked to district CFO Michael Masch, who says there’s a chance more layoffs are on the way. The district is also still waiting on $75 million in union concessions, which have not yet been agreed to.
