Girard College Delays Proposed Changes
By John McDevitt
PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Proposed changes at Girard College next September have been pushed back a year.
As a court decides on whether or not to grant Girard College’s the board of director’s proposal to temporarily do away with the institution’s high school and residential programs so it gain financial stability (see related story), the board has now decided to push the proposal back one year to September 2015.
The spokesman for The Board of Directors of City Trusts is Kevin Feally.
” We want to give the court enough time to be able to properly consider the case and the court certainly has the right to do that and while the court is doing that in order to end this sort of sense of uncertainty that is taking place up there at the college we decided to postpone for a year,” Feally said.
Feally says a plan to reduce spending is essential for the future of the school.
“To allow the trust time to recover from the difficulties it experienced during the recession and there after,” Feally said.
