Hundreds Of Philadelphia School Financial Documents Released
PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – The city has released a pile of internal documents the School District provided as part of their so-called “Education Accountability Agreement.”
These are the hundreds and hundreds of pages of information the city requested, before City Council approved $53 million dollars in extra money to help the school district close its budget gap. They’re online for all to see at the city’s web site.
The documents include a list of about 500 principals, and central office employees making more than $90,000 a year. Also included is Superintendent Arlene Ackerman’s employment contract, and a list of district professional service contracts.
City Finance Director Rob Dubow says still more info may be on the way.
“As you’d expect, when you get that large volume of documents, there’ll be follow-up information that you need and additional requests, and we’re still going through that process with the district,” Dubow says. “People can go click and look at it and draw their own conclusions.”
