The Scranton School Board held a virtual work session last evening  at the district administration building. There was expected to be a vote on furloughing over 200 district employees. The meeting lasted several hours and just before it was over a vote was taken to table the decision with no new date set to vote on the proposal.  Questions about ending health insurance for employees who would be furloughed during a pandemic and special education obligations need to be addressed. Among those being furloughed would be over 100 paraprofessionals who work with special needs students. The district will begin virtual learning  September 8.
