Schenley Odds: Not Great

As a decision on the Pittsburgh Schenley High School building looms, Pittsburgh Public Schools Superintendent Mark Roosevelt last night provided additional information showing the district’s financial condition is improving but remains a serious concern.

Mr. Roosevelt said the presentation, given at the school board’s agenda review meeting, was not intended to foreshadow his recommendation on the Schenley building. He will make his recommendation at a meeting Monday, and the board is expected to vote in June.


Board President Bill Isler said he’s concerned that the district would “not be able to take on much more debt.” After the meeting, Mr. Isler said that statement wasn’t a reference to the debate over Schenley’s future. (P-G, Joe Smydo)

So they aren’t willing to say definitively either way yet.

We’re getting a lot of that.
