Results of a study commissioned last year by the Pottsgrove School District that examines and makes recommendations on the district’s future buildings and facilities needs will be the prime topic of discussion when the district Board of Education meets Nov. 11 at 7 p.m. in Ringing Rocks Elementary School, 1401 Kauffman Rd., Pottstown PA.
- This event has been added to The Post’s November calendar.
The study looked at and reports on:
- The possible renovation or expansion of athletic fields;
- Renovation, repairs, or re-building of Ringing Rocks, which hasn’t been renovated in more than 20 years;
- A lack of office and storage space in the district offices adjacent to the high school, 1301 Kauffman Rd., Pottstown; and
- Additional classroom space at the high school, as well as possible renovation of the high school gym.
Although the board has not yet made any decisions based on the study, a letter from district Superintendent Dr. Bradley Landis – posted earlier this month on the district’s website – indicates the results may have a bearing on “some important decisions our School Board will be examining over the coming months.” The letter invites district residents to “consider attending to learn about our potential future plans.”
For its part, Landis wrote, “our board is committed to carefully considering all options, and evaluating what’s best for all members of our school community.”
A summary of the study will be posted on the district website following the Nov. 11 meeting.
