Public schools will open on September 8

Budget slashings, school buildings on the chopping block and large personnel firings will not stop Philadelphia public schools from opening on time.

School district Superintendent Williams Hite announced that all Philadelphia public schools will open for a full school year.

School security, repairs and janitorial work and some extra programs would be diminished, but students will have opened doors and teachers waiting for them on September 8.

“The schools that are opening will look very much like the ones that we had last year,” said Hite to

However, the school district is not out of the woods completely. A canceled cigarette tax vote in the state Senate and House of Representatives is still needed to keep all teachers employed, says the school district.
