ALLENTOWN, Pa. -

The Allentown School District could be adding dozens of teachers back to the payroll.

The school board is expected to finalize plans Thursday night to bring back 72 furloughed teachers.

Twenty-five of the positions were saved after the district got a boost in state funding.

The rest of the teachers will be brought back to fill positions that opened up through retirements and resignations.
