Very Vocal Scranton School Board Meeting

No decision made

December 19, 2017 - 5:20 am

The auditorium of South Scranton Intermediate School was packed last night with parents, students and teachers in the district until just before midnight. Many were very vocal in their message to the Scranton School Board, don't lay off any teachers.  The board had proposed last week to lay of 89 teachers as part of an effort to close a 19 million dollar budget gap for 2018. The plan also calls for a 3.6 percent property tax increase, 4 percent salary decrease for administrators and eliminating intermediate school sports. No decisions were made. A budget must be approved by the end of the year.
