Corbett, State Lawmakers Discuss Future Of Chester-Upland School District

By Brad Segall

NORRISTOWN, Pa. (CBS) – Several members of the Delaware County legislative delegation in Harrisburg met Monday with Governor Tom Corbett to talk about the ongoing financial crisis in the Chester-Upland School District.

The short-term goal here is to find a way to keep the district running until the end of this school year. The district was given a $3.2-million infusion of cash earlier this month to help them make payroll until mid-February.

State Senator Daylin Leach, whose district spans Delaware and Montgomery Counties, says the governor is receptive to the needs of the district. “Governor Corbett committed that he would support getting the additional money to them. It’s approximately $20-million. He indicated he wanted to find out exactly what the number was and that’s reasonable.”

He says that could include a supplemental legislative appropriation. Leach says there was no consensus on how the current crisis was caused, but all agreed they need to find a way to keep the district’s 3,700 students in the classroom.
