Pittsburgh school district officials have scrapped plans for two teacher-training academies, saying they weren't able to reach an agreement with the Pittsburgh Federation of Teachers to retain the teachers once layoffs become necessary. Under the terms of the teachers contract, staff reductions are based on seniority; the academies are for new teachers. The district faces a $68 million budget deficit in 2012.
