Wilkinsburg School Board Directors (from L to R):

LaTonya Washington, Karen Payne, President Ed Donovan, Michael Johnson, Debra Raubenstrauch, and Klara Brown.

On Thursday, May 7, Acting superintnendent Dan Matsook announced that the district is looking for an “education partner” willing to take the secondary students on a tuition basis and offer them significantly more academic and extra curricular activities than they have now because of their small size and tight finances.
