WILKINSBURG, Pa. (AP) - The head of a struggling suburban Pittsburgh school district is expected to outline its plans for next school year at a community meeting Thursday.

The Post-Gazette reports (https://bit.ly/1dNMMSc ) acting Wilkinsburg superintendent Dan Matsook is expected to announce grades 7-12 will stay in the district after neighboring schools refused to take on about 200 of its students.

Matsook is also expected to discuss the district’s budget, facilities and enrollment.

Wilkinsburg has lost many students to charter schools. It’s one of the poorest, most crime-ridden Pittsburgh suburbs.
