READING, Pa. -

The Reading School District will hold a special meeting Monday to discuss a possible payroll problem.

On Friday state officials said the district was facing a $15.6 million dollar budget shortfall and may not be able to make payroll in March.

School board members said a math mistake on a recent audit led to the confusion, and board members we spoke with on Friday insist that everyone will get paid.

The school board meets at 5 p.m.
