PUNXSUTAWNEY â€” After learning about proposed budget cuts to school districts presented by Gov. Tom Corbett this week, Punxsutawney Area School District Superintendent Dr. Keith Wolfe said Friday that Gov. Tom Corbettâ€™s proposed budget cuts to school districts may have placed all-day kindergarten in jeopardy.
Wolfe said he had just returned from a superintendentsâ€™ meeting at Riverview Intermediate Unit (IU) No. 6 in Clarion, and the amount of concern was astronomical.
INDIANA â€” Students planning to attend Indiana University of Pennsylvania (IUP) â€” or any other school within the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education â€” should prepare for their wallets to get a little lighter in light of cuts in Gov. Tom Corbettâ€™s proposed budget.
In his budget issued Tuesday, Corbett proposed cutting $625 million in higher education costs. If the budget is approved, funding for state and state-related schools â€” including Penn State, Temple University and Lincoln University â€” would be slashed by 50 percent.
