School Board Notes
The Meeting in Review
During a special meeting held on October 12, the Board voted to approve a settlement agreement that resulted from the Methacton School District vs. Worcester Township, et al., in the Court of Common Pleas of Montgomery County. This agreement, once approved by all parties, will allow the district to move forward with the installation of lights on the stadium and auxiliary turf fields.
"This has been a long journey, and while we are not yet finished, this is a significant step forward," School Board President S. Christian Nascimento said, "Thanks to everyone in the community that has supported this project for so long."
A presentation that outlines the main terms of the agreement can be found in the School Board section of the district's website here. The Worcester Township Board of Supervisors voted unanimously to approve the agreement during a meeting on October 13. The neighbors, who are the remaining parties to the matter, are expected to provide their response to the agreement on October 15. Once this is complete, the district will communicate this additional information in order to keep our community apprised of our progress.
Superintendent Dr. David Zerbe then provided the Board with a presentation outlining his recommendation for a vendor to assist the district in conducting a second enrollment projection and, if needed, use the enrollment projections and initial related data to assist the district with re-drawing of boundary lines. Following the presentation and discussion, the Board tabled the vendor selection agenda item, requesting that Dr. Zerbe provide some additional details from two of the vendors, Citygate and Milone & MacBroom.
