Sports, Music, And Art Program Cuts, Plus Nearly 3,800 Layoff Notices Sent To Philadelphia School District Staff

The School District of Philadelphia ‘s so-called “doomsday budget has begun to take effect. This past Friday district administrators announced deep cuts in jobs and school programs.

According to reports, “In all close to 3,800 teachers and support staff received layoff notices in an effort to fill a budget gap of more than $300 million. There were cuts in art, music and sports, and also getting layoff notices were almost every assistant principal in the district.

Some cuts can be rescinded if the district gets more funding this summer.

Administrators have asked the city and state to kick in $180 million and unions about $130 million.

Superintendent Dr. William Hite joined local news station “Good Day Philadelphia” on Monday morning to talk about the budget crisis.
