Central Dauphin budget deficit continues to shrink

Posted: Updated:
HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) -

Central Dauphin School District's budget continues to show progress. The existing budget hole continues to shrink as district officials work to get it balanced.

"I think we're heading in the right direction," school board president Ford Thompson said. "And I remain pretty confident that by the time we present this to the public for the 30 day comment period, we'll be in balance."

The news was encouraging to teachers' union leader Georgia Smee, who last year had to deal with 70 some teachers getting furlough notices.

"Things seem to be looking better," she said, pointing out that the district started the budget process with a deficit of around $5.6 million.

Now the deficit stands at about $2.8 million.

"We have not discussed any employee furloughs," Thompson said. "It is a lot better than last year."
