Ambridge School District Proposes Budget With $2.3 Million Deficit – Eliminates 21 Positions

The county’s highest-taxed school district is in serious financial trouble. Ambridge Area School District passed a proposed budget last night that includes millions in deficits and slashes teaching positions.

The meeting began with a lengthy public comment session that ran much longer than the normally allotted 30 minutes.
