  • County schools to stay open during May 1 teacher protest

    As teachers across the state gear up for the May 1 protest rally at the State House, the Lancaster County School District is preparing for the impact it might have on the county.
    “I am 100 percent behind the teachers” on the issues of higher pay and smaller class sizes, Superintendent Jonathan Phipps said Friday.
    While some other school districts such as Chester County have canceled classes to accommodate the SC for Ed Rally in Columbia, Lancaster County schools will stay open, Phipps said.
