September 22, 2015

Harrisburg, PA – Wolf Administration spokesman Jeffrey Sheridan released the following statement:

“The Wolf Administration today, through the Department of Education and Chester Upland School District Receiver Dr. Francis Barnes, has withdrawn the revised amended financial recovery plan submitted to the Delaware County Court of Common Pleas.

“We are confident in our amended plan as the best path forward, but the administration, PDE, and Dr. Barnes are continuing discussions with involved parties to reach a resolution that puts Chester Upland on solid financial footing.
